Bosnia-Herzegovina - Blautsauger, Lampir

Blautsauger: The Blautsauger is a hairy vampire with no skeleton, but has large eyes. It can turn into a rat or a wolf (preferred wolf form). The creature hid dirt from its tomb behind its back in an attempt to get people to eat dirt from its tomb so they'll become vampires also. Scattering hawthorn flowers along the road from its home to the tomb will slow it down.

Lampir: Supposedly interchangeable with the term Vukodlak, otherwise still under research. Another off shoot of note is Lampijerovic. This term was also used by the Balkan Gypsies to describe the child of a Vampire. Also known as Lampiger and Lampijer in the Balkan states.
