Black Salamander, Speckled Black Salamander
|Taxonomic Notes: Rissler and Apodaca (2007, Syst Biol 56: 924-942) present arguments that the species as recognized by AmphibiaWeb should be broken into four species, with A. iecanus and A. niger recognized as full species, and a third that lacks a name in addition to A. flavipunctatus. They made no formal taxonomic change. The complex is currently under study and we await the results.|
