Leuciscus turskyi

Telestes turskyi is a species of cyprinid restricted to lake Buško Blato in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Čikola River, a tributary of the Krka in Croatia. This species was thought to be extinct, but was found in May 2002 by J. Freyhof and N. Bogutskaya. Its habitat continues to decline due to water extraction and drought.
