Gravid female observed during City of Austin survey
I chased it off the road, but then it wouldn't pose for a photo :(
Georgetown salamander in its "natural" habitat.
This is a wild-ass guess. There were at least 100 in a small culvert. The only place with water was directly under the road.
I thought it might have been something other than a common spotted given all the different kinds of whiptails out in west texas, but now I don't think so...
Collected by Gluesenkamp. This guy is an undescribed species. Tipton et al. called it the Pedernales River Springs salamander.
DOR. Observed later in the night by Gluesenkamp. Correctly ID'd in the morning by Laduc.
With Cullen Hanks
from somewhere at Lost Maples.
After heavy rain showers. Several individuals calling.
From somewhere in the SFA Experimental Forest.
This is E. nana until someone shows that it's not E. nana....
I think we caught him on the ground.
Lost Maples State Natural Area. Did not see any transformed individuals on this trip, but it was dry.
This is now a voucher at UT Arlington. It was found quickly and captured by hand, later photographed in a petri dish. (AGG 1058 or 1059)
Caught by AG Gluesenkamp. Photographed in a squeeze box.
Buck Moth caterpillar, Hemileuca maia. http://bugguide.net/node/view/776082#1385720
