Description from Wikipedia

The striped newt, Notophthalmus perstriatus, is a species of aquatic salamander native to the Southeastern United States. It is a close relative of the eastern newt, with which it shares territory, and can be distinguished from the latter by the presence of red stripes running down the sides of its back and red spots on its back that lack a black outline.
