New mouse species on our doorstep.

It is not often that a new mammal species is discoverd in Europe. After careful comparisons of the different mice species on the island of Cyprus, Bonhomme et al. (2004) considered the Cyprus mouse to be sufficiently different to the other known mice in the region to name it as a new species: Mus cypriacus. Sorry, but can't find a photo.
