This is a discussion on Hynobius mysteryensis? within the Hynobiid Salamanders (Hynobiidae) forums, part of the Species, Genus & Family Discussions category; Can anybody out there identify this mysterious Chinese sal? (Message edited by TJ on January 20, 2007)...
|Hynobiid Salamanders (Hynobiidae) This group of Far Eastern salamanders are becoming increasingly popular in captivity, and thanks to the captive breeding efforts of one European hobbyist in particular (you know who I mean), they are becoming easier and easier to acquire.|

How about Hynobius or Batrachuperus Imjealousofit ?
No really i have no idea, but if it were Batrachuperus I would expect it to have cornified toe tips.
I'm having some Hynobius chinensis/yieuwensis (the everlasting discussion) and they do look quite different.
This animal looks way to flatheaded andlongstretched to be pondtype indeed. Have never seen anything alike it. But then Chinese hynobidae are quite unknown

Well, I am wondering now if this might be another form of Liua shihi (Wushan Salamander) because they were in the same shipment -- and a subsequent shipment had more in with ones that were evidently Liua shihi. Here are the new ones:

It was being sold at one place as Pseudohynobius flavomaculatus
