Southern Two-lined Salamander

Eurycea cirrigera

Description:

Adult spotted in a rocky stream in Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, GA

Habitat:

Inhabits reek or river swamps, seepages, and hardwood forests, often hiding underneath leaf litter, vegetation, or logs, and in aquatic habitats where fish are absent or rare. During wet weather, Eurycea cirrigera will often emerge from hiding and move about on the surface in moist woodlands. They are most abundant in mountainous regions.

Notes:

The name Eurycea cirrigera is derived from the two cirri that grow on males during breeding season. Cirri are small, antennae-like lobes hanging from the salamander's snout
