Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Plethdon jordani
Redcheek Salamander

Sevier Co., Tennessee
April 25, 2006

Along the banks of a roaring, rain-swollen stream, I found several dozen of these salamanders, under rocks and out in the open. In the same place I also found the desmognathid salamander that mimics Plethodon jordani, the Imitator Salamander, Desmognathus imitator. It was interesting to find these two species in the same location.
