Default Captive bred Aneides aeneus.

The local media mentioned it in a newspaper article, so I don't think it's a secret any more.
Zoo helping to sustain salamander population - Toledo Blade

For the record, I do not believe that the Northern Slimy Salamander hatched at the zoo was the first time any salamander was bred in a zoo setting

After many years of trying, I was finally successful at breeding Green Salamanders at the zoo. These were produced by a pair of adults that has been at the zoo since 2007.

Around 15 hatchlings survived and are doing well, just started eating springtails and pinheads.

Enjoy,
Tim

This is definitely a good start and great news. Are they from a known population, or at least known enough to be sure of what species they are [given the liklihood of greens being a complex of 3-4 species]?

This is awesome! I was just googling images of green salamanders just for kicks and I get this. I have been bugging my boss to get me some greens, but he doesn't care too much for salamanders.
