|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.|

Re: T.marmoratus juveniles
You just have to keep the moss moist, but not damp, and provide very good ventilation. As long as the air is properly ventilted, they can tolerate high humidity.
I see you have cypress leaves, i would remove them as soon as possible, because cypress is toxic for most animals, specially amphibians. The main problem is usully the bark, but i wouldn´t risk it.....
