I can only think of three off the top of my head: yellow perch, which is
really considered a different species in Eurasia; Atlantic salmon,
definitely the same species by our reckoning; and the common eel, again
really a separate species because it appears to be reproductively isolated
but is usually, superficially, indistinguishable.

Sorry for the sloppy systematics!
