Observed at a green salamander study location where 7 individuals were present.
Two specimens in a cave in Overton co TN down a 66 ft pit. I saw one there also in April 2016.
Was hiding under a log near a sawmill. We were flipping wood trying to see what we could find. Apparently it's an endangered species in NC.
The green salamander (Aneides aeneus) is a member of the lungless salamanders, family Plethodontidae. It is the only member of the Aneides genus that inhabits the Eastern United States (all other Aneides salamanders are found in the west). Rarely seen in the field, the green salamander is an extremely habitat-specific species that is seldom found away from its preferred surroundings: moist, shaded rock crevices.
