Spotted Salamander

Ambystoma maculatum
(Shaw, 1802)
Mingo Swamp, Wayne Co., Missouri. May 8, 1984.

I’ve lost my original photos of the first Spotties that I saw at Mingo; below are specimens are a female from Indiana and a male (orange spots on the head) from Illinois. In the spring they are usually found under logs along the edge of vernal pools, the temporary ponds formed from spring rains.

My Flickr album for this species is here.

HerpMapper records for this species are here.
