Yeah, I think the reason nobody mentioned Bolitoglossa and Pseudoeurycea is because they are typically associated with Central and South America, and the question dealt with North American Plethodontids. However, Pseudoeurycea and, to some extent, Bolitoglossa are technically North American because they can be found in Mexico. But when I originally posted this thread, I had Plethodontids of the US and Canada in mind.

Even we do look at Neotropical Bolitoglossine caudates, my favorites are Nyctanolis and Ixalotriton.
