Philjae Kim, Hyeongsu Kim & Suhwan Kim. (2021). Characterization of the mitochondrial complete genome of Korean indigenous catfish, Liobagrus hyeongsanensis
(Siluriformes: Amblycipitidae), Mitochondrial DNA Part B
https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10 ... 21.1947917
, Korean indigenous catfish, was reported as a new species in 2015. The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence of L. hyeongsanensis
was sequenced by next-generation sequencing (NGS) analysis. The mitochondrial genome was assembled with 16,529 bp in length and encoded 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 22 tRNAs, two rRNAs, and one control region (D-loop). Also, the gene structures such as gene order and content were totally identical with the congeneric species. Molecular phylogenetic analysis determined the taxonomical position of L. hyeongsanensis
in species level among the genus Liobagrus.

I don't know how well the phylogeny of Liobagrus is worked out, but maybe this is helpful.
