Default Tylototriton anguliceps, new species from Vietnam and Thailand

In the studies and descriptions of new species of Tylototriton from northern Indochina, multiple unnamed clades have been identified. Another of these has now been described as Tylototriton anguliceps. It is identified from Vietnam and Thailand, and is expected in China, Myanmar, and Laos as well:

Dzung Trung Le, Tao Thien Nguyen, Kanto Nishikawa, Son Lan Hung Nguyen, Anh Van Pham, Masafumi Matsui, Marta Bernardes and Truong Quang Nguyen, 2015. A New Species of Tylototriton Anderson, 1871 (Amphibia: Salamandridae) from Northern Indochina. Current Herpetology Volume 34 Issue 1: 38-50.

We describe a new species of Tylototriton from northwestern Vietnam and northern Thailand based on morphological and molecular evidence. Tylototriton anguliceps sp. nov. is distinguishable from all the other congeners by the bright to dark orange markings on the head, body, and tail, prominent dorsal and dorsolateral ridges (crests) on the head, skeletal connection between maxillary and pterygoid, and unique mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences. Our molecular data show that the new species is nested within the clade comprising T. uyenoi, T. shanjing, T. verrucosus, and T. yangi. The new species is expected to be recorded from other countries in the Indochina region such as southern China, western Myanmar and northern Laos in the future.
