Plethodontids and Lungless Salamanders (Bolitoglossa, Eurycea, Plethodon, etc.) The largest, and one of the most diverse groups of salamanders, these salamanders have all evolved to breathe solely through their skin and are found almost exclusively in North America.

Default Old worm salamanders, new names...

Several known populations of worm salamanders have received names. As of tomorrow [from my perspective], Batrachoseps "relictus" from north of the Kern River are Batrachoseps altasierrae.
Breckenridge mountain specimens are B.relictus, a species apparently extinct at the type locality.
Upper Kern Canyon salamanders are now B.bramei.

At present, only the abstract/title page is available free:
