Description

Found underneath rock in a small creek. Dorsal color seems quite different depending on whether I used the flash.

Not certain of a Desmognathus ochrophaeus ID. There's almost a central dorsal groove with Vs that pattern the salamander's back and sides. A salamander with similar grooves was found nearby.
