Description

I believe these to be ravine salamanders but have never taken good photos of the undersides before to be certain. I have never seen photos to clarify what the undersides should look like as opposed to lead-backed forms of red-backed salamanders. Also included is a set of eggs found in the middle of this population.

Description

I am not 100% certain that this is not a leadback P. cinereus. Looks "wormy" to me and had very little flecking on the venter, mostly dark. Found four individuals that looked very similar. The pictures are two individuals.
