This salamander was found during the day under a rock in a residential neighborhood in southeast Pittsburgh, PA.
Found under rocks on this hillside slope.
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.
Two individuals ovserved under a log. Photos are of one individual.
