Liechtenstein Endangered and Vulnerable Species

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ for LIECHTENSTEIN in Central Europe lists only two endangered species. There are no critically endangered species on this Red List in regards to Liechtenstein, which is the case with Kiribati and Lesotho. Thick-shelled River Mussels and White-footed Crayfish are endangered in Liechtenstein. The mussels can be found throughout the European continent but are nonetheless at risk for extreme population losses. White-footed Crayfish live mostly in Southern and Western Europe, especially in Croatia, France, Ireland, Italy, Monaco, San Marino, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Liechtenstein's six vulnerable species are the Apollo Butterfly, Northern Pochard duck, Nut Orb Mussel, River Crayfish, Rosalia Longhorn (Longicorn) beetle, and Turtle Dove.
