Notes

It's beginning to look a lot like lifers, everywhere you go...On this warm Christmas day (it topped out at over 65 in the Ozarks), Bethany and I found three Oklahoma Salamanders in a crystal-clear chert stream with some larger stones scattered about. What beautiful habitat!! Bethany is vouchering the other two (one adult, one larvae). This is the metamorphic, dark-colored variant of Oklahoma salamander previously referred to as "Graybelly Salamander" before the genomic evidence united the species.
