I have some photos from Dick Bartlett that I will post on CC shortly. Thank you to Dick for tipping me off to this. It was just published in Journal of Zoology.

Well thats encouraging to see that even on a continent as heaviley populated as North America there are still new species to be found. quite attractive too, I dont think it mentioned but do they prefer warmer temperature's or are they typical of most Caudates?

The species account for these needs to be updated: they are also found in adjoining South Carolina.
