Abstract

Courtship behavior was observed in recently captured adult Eurycea lucifuga during the nights of 19-20 July and 22-23 July 1966, under laboratory conditions at the Mountain Lake Biological Station, Giles County, Virginia. The incomplete courtship sequences seen were most similar to the pattern described for Eurycea bislineata. The spermatophore stalk closely resembled that of Pseudotriton ruber nitidus.
