Anabarilius macrolepis P. L. Yih & C. K. Wu

Yilong Whitefish (Anabarilius macrolepis)

This species was restricted to the Yilong Lake in Yunnan, China; in 1981, this lake dried out completely for about 20 days as a consequence of water extraction for agriculture.

The Yilong Whitefish had no chance to survive and is now extinct.
