Eurasian Newts (Triturus, former Triturus, Calotriton & Euproctus).. Triturus and its relatives (Ichthyosaura/Mesotriton, Lissotriton, and Ommatotriton) are a diverse and widespread group of newts. While mainly European, several species can be found in the Near and Middle East. Euproctus, the brook newts, are confined to Corsica and Sardinia.

Default Cooling period

I had my t.marms and my dobrogicus in the basement for 4 weeks now. The tempurature down there is about 47 degrees to 50 degrees. Is 4 weeks long enough for them to start cresting?

It depends on the animals. I have 2 males, one crests up easily, sometimes with just a change in photo period. The other won`t crest up unless he has a minimum of 2 month cooling around 42 F. If you are overly eager, you can try to warm them up a little and see what happens, you can tell rather quickly, within a week or two whether or not they will come into breeding. If they don`t, just cool them down for a few more weeks, maybe at a slightly cooler temp.
