I just did, and your Black-belly looks like it's probably a seal sally, desmognathus monticola, although it might be a Spotted Dusky. I'm glad to review this stuff. If you return to the Smokies, the Tilley+Huheey Field guide is absolutely phenomenal for herps.

I had wondered about that, I'll make the change. Have you seen the other Tennessee critters I uploaded, I am wondering whether they are correctly labeled too.
