Urspelerpes brucei: Patch-Nosed Salamander

This sexually dimorphic species was only discovered in 2007. Males (right) are striped/spotted and bright yellow, while females (left) are usually more dull and lack the dark patterns. Both possess a patch of light pigmentation on the nose and a light yellow stripe on the tale. Note: males, like Eurycea, posses cirri during breeding season.
