Description

one live lt salamander crossing the road, made it and crawled away in the dark before I got a picture; one dead, smashed but green head and back marking (although the green doesn't show well in image), intercostal grooves (ventral image) excludes other possibilities; the 4th hind toe not especially long, but in looking through the substantial collection here at the Slater Museum smaller individuals have equal length hind 3rd & 4th toes, not sure when the longer 4th develops.

This species, typically 4.1–8.9 cm (1.6 to 3.5 in) long when mature, is characterized by its mottled black, brown, and yellow pigmentation, and its long outer fourth toe on the hind limbs. Analysis of fossil records, genetics, and biogeography suggest A. macrodactylum and A. laterale are descended from a common ancestor that gained access to the western Cordillera with the loss of the mid-continental...
