White-Spotted Slimy Salamander

Plethodon cylindraceus
(Harlan, 1825)
Pendleton Co., West Virginia. April 22, 2006.

“Fortunately the rain slacked off after twenty minutes or so, because I was finding some salamanders here. First up were several Slimy Salamanders under logs. Here in the northeastern counties of West Virginia, these were Plethodon cylindraceus, the White-spotted Slimy Salamander. Although most forms in the glutinosus complex have white spots, these specimens came with large and well defined round white spots, and were quite pretty.”
