Paradactylodon persicus

Subgenus: Paradactylodon
family: Hynobiidae
subfamily: Hynobiinae
Taxonomic Notes: Some authors recognize the best-known population of this species as a separate species, Paradactylodon gorganensis. Dubois and Raffaelli (2012) Alytes 28: 77-161 consider the creation of the name Paradactylodon to be invalid and offer a substitute name Iranodon. AmphibiaWeb considers Paradactylodon to be a valid name.
