Danube Delta Dwarf Goby (Knipowitschia cameliae)

The Danube Delta Dwarf Goby is a very small freshwater goby that is only known from a single small lagoon south of the Danube Delta in Romania, where it inhabited shallow brackish and fresh water, usually less than 1 m deep.

The species reached a length of only about 3 cm; it was greyish colored and its body was covered with small blackish spots.

The Danube Delta Dwarf Goby was last seen in 1994, since then it is lost without any trace and appears to be extinct.
