A new crayfish species was discovered by a teacher at the West University of Timisoara. After more than 10 years of research, Mr. Lucian Parvulescu, Ph.D. associate professor at the Faculty of Chemistry, Biology, Geography, discovered a new species of crayfish.
The species is called Bihorean Crayfish and lives only in Romania, in the Apuseni Mountains. Thus, the sixth European crayfish species has been confirmed by the international community. Experts approve that the Bihorean Crayfish has unique features unknown so far and it has been introduced into the International Catalog of Animal Species.
Until now, only 5 crayfish species have been known in Europe. Due to the discovery of our colleague, teacher at the Faculty of Chemistry, Biology, Geography, the number of identified species increased by 20%. https://www.facebook.com/Digi24Timisoara/videos/2149901195322397/
