Examples of "dusky_salamander_desmognathus"
The Santeetlah Dusky Salamander (Desmognathus santeetlah) is a species of salamander in the family Plethodontidae.
The Allegheny Mountain dusky salamander ("Desmognathus ochrophaeus") is a species in the Plethodontidae (lungless salamander) family.
The Blue Ridge Dusky Salamander, (Desmognathus orestes), is a species of salamander in the family Plethodontidae.
The Carolina Mountain Dusky Salamander (Desmognathus carolinensis) is a species of salamander in the family Plethodontidae.
The Apalachicola dusky salamander ("Desmognathus apalachicolae") is a species of salamander in the family Plethodontidae. It is threatened by habitat loss.
The southern dusky salamander ("Desmognathus auriculatus") is a species of salamander native to the coastal regions of the southeastern United States, from Virginia to Texas. Older sources often refer to it as the eared triton.
It shares the same range as the seal salamander ("Desmognathus monticola") and northern dusky salamander ("Desmognathus fuscus") which are both more terrestrial, and the blackbelly salamander ("Desmognathus quadramaculatus") which shares its aquatic habits.
The Cumberland dusky salamander (Desmognathus abditus) is a species of salamander in the Plethodontidae (lungless salamander) family. It is endemic to the United States. Its natural habitats are temperate forests and rivers. This species is threatened by habitat loss.
Several other species of salamander occupy the same range as the Cumberland dusky salamander and it is believed to hybridize with the Allegheny Mountain dusky salamander ("Desmognathus ochrophaeus") and the Ocoee Salamander ("Desmognathus ocoee").
The Ouachita dusky salamander (Desmognathus brimleyorum) is a species of salamander in the family Plethodontidae. It is endemic to the states of Arkansas and Oklahoma in the United States. The specific epithet is in honour of Herbert Hutchinson Brimley and his younger brother, Clement Samuel Brimley, both of whom were zoologists.
Predators may include beetles and sciomyzid fly larvae, many of which specialize in feeding upon snails. Other potential predators may include the northern two-lined salamander ("Eurycea bislineata"), northern dusky salamander ("Desmognathus fuscus"), and Allegheny Mountain dusky salamander ("Desmognathus ochrophaeus"), which are common in the talus and on the ledges, as well as various small mammals or passerine birds such as robins and pigeons, which are often seen in or near the habitat. Although predation does not appear to be a limiting factor at this time, its potential impact on a low or stressed population is unclear. The 1978 listing rule included predation by the introduced European snails, "Discus rotundatus" and "Oxychilus" spp. as serious threats to "Novisuccinea chittenangoensis". Little is currently known about this relationship.
Several other species of salamander occupy the same range as the blackbelly salamander. These include the dusky salamander ("Desmognathus fuscus"), the Allegheny Mountain dusky salamander ("Desmognathus ochrophaeus"), and the seal salamander ("Desmognathus monticola"). Blackbelly and seal salamanders seem to actively avoid each other and it is possible that they use chemical cues to avoid coming into contact. They are sometimes attacked by garter snakes ("Thamnophis" sp.). The blackbelly salamander's defence strategies include its warning colouration (though it is not in fact toxic), remaining still in the hope a predator will fail to notice it, biting the aggressor, and shedding its tail (autotomy) as a distraction. Biting was successful against garter snakes and was also used against shrews.
Inventories carried at Mont Yamaska allowed to observe over fifteen species of amphibians and even reptiles (such as the painted turtle ("Chrysemys picta") and Common Garter Snake ("Thamnophis sirtalis")). Common amphibians inventoried in the river are the dusky salamander ("Desmognathus fucus"), wood frog ("Rana sylvatica"), and the green frog ("Rana clamitans"). The Baie Lavalilière (Sainte-Anne-de-Sorel, Québec), located near the mouth of the river, is considered a very rich habitat for amphibians, although poaching of bullfrog ("Rana catesbeiana"), northern leopard frog ("Rana pipiens"), and green frog limit their population.
This species was first described by Anderson and Tilley in 2003 and little information is known about it. Prior to that time the Allegheny Mountain dusky salamander ("Desmognathus ochrophaeus") had been thought to be a single species but studies using nucleic acid sequencing and agar gel electrophoresis have since shown it to be a species complex. The Cumberland dusky salamander is one of five members of this complex and has been found at several sites in Tennessee on the Cumberland Plateau. The most northerly of these is near Wartburg in Morgan County and the most southerly is on the southern side of the Cumberland Plateau near Tracy City in Grundy County. All known specimens have been found under rocks in streams or within a metre (yard) of flowing water and a favoured location is moss-covered rocks behind cascades.
The Alabama waterdog is found in the Appalachian headwaters of the Black Warrior River drainage basin in Alabama. Its range includes the Sipsey Fork and Brushy Creek in Winston County, the Mulberry Fork, Blackwater Creek, and Lost Creek in Walker County, the North River and Yellow Creek in Tuscaloosa County, and the Locust Fork and Blackburn Fork in Blount County. It is found in unsilted small and medium-sized streams in clay areas. It is more likely to be present when the larvae of the northern dusky salamander ("Desmognathus fuscus") are present and less likely in streams where the Asiatic mussel ("Corbicula" sp.) is abundant. The areas of dead leaves and detritus sometimes found in backwaters are important for this species.
