Notes

Animals observed ~10 miles SW of the type locality of Pseudobranchus striatus lustricolus but apparently do not meet the description of that type in that the dorsal light stripes are more diffuse than that of P. s. lustricolus and the ventrolateral line is yellow instead of "silvery white". All animals were sub-adults in the 4-5 inch range.
