AMPHIBIAWEB
Plethodon grobmani
Southeastern Slimy Salamander
Subgenus: Plethodon
family: Plethodontidae
subfamily: Plethodontinae
genus: Plethodon
Taxonomic Notes: Based on geographic variation in allozymes, Highton et al. (1989) recognized populations of the Plethodon glutinosus Complex from the southeastern coastal plain of Florida, southern Georgia, and southern Alabama as Plethodon grobmani (first described as Plethodon glutinosus grobmani Allen & Neill 1949). Similarly Highton et al. (1989) recognized populations from Mississippi, Alabama, eastern Louisiana, and western Tennessee and Kentucky as P. mississippi. Based on a study of largely mitochondrial data from populations in Alabama, Joyce et al. (2019) recognized both P. grobmani and P. mississippi as junior synonyms of P. glutinosus. While we accept these synonymies, it is worth noting that Joyce et al. (2019) did not include topotypic material from either Florida or Mississippi.
