We visited the Proteus site in village Prud (Neretva)

On February 22nd – 25th HYLA researchers involved on the PROTEUS project visited the olm site in Prud village (near the town of Metković). One olm specimen was found in a manhole next to an enclosed Prud spring, and a tissue sample was taken for DNA analysis. In is interesting that Branko Jalžić-Bančo visited the site a couple of times and found nothing. In December of this year he found 3 specimens, after 3 days none, in January 2 specimens and in February of 2015. he found 7 specimens.

Based on Bančo's findings, the HYLA team was glad they managed to find at least one olm specimen.
