|Scope: Global & Europe|
|Scientific Name:||Phoxinus strymonicus Kottelat, 2007|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Endangered B1ab(iii) ver 3.1|

|Reviewer(s):||Bogutskaya, N., & Smith, K. (IUCN Freshwater Biodiversity Unit)|
The species is currently only known from the Aggitis stream in the Strymon drainage in Greece with an extent of occurrence of less than 3,000 km². Based on the major threats of water abstraction and drought the species is found in less than five locations. The stream is also impacted by pollution from surrounding intensive agriculture. If the Phoxinus specimens collected from the Loudias and Filiouris basins are found to be strymonicus, the species' range (extent of occurrence) will probably fall outside the threshold for Endangered or even Vulnerable.
|Range Description:||Aegean Sea basin; Currently only known from the Aggitis system (Strymon basin) (Greece), records from the Loudias and Filiouris drainages are tentativley considered to be P. strymonicus but this requires examination of the specimens for confrmation. (Greece, probably Bulgaria).|
