Abstract

We describe a new species of Pseudoeurycea from the northern versant of the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. This is the only aquatic species of bolitoglossine salamander known. Besides its aquatic behavior, this species differs from congeners by having very long legs, a triangular shaped head with nostrils that can be completely closed, and relatively few maxillary teeth. This remarkable new species of salamander may have become extinct over two decades ago.
