Zaumia sanctizaumi (Radoman)

Ohrid Freshwater Snail (Zaumia sanctizaumi)

This species was described in 1964, it was a freshwater snail restricted to a very small area in the southeast part of Lake Ohrid in Albania. 

The quality of the lake’s water has declined due to pollution and, because the species was not recorded during rescent surveys, it is believed to be very probably extinct.
