All of the books I've read tell the difference between a male and female adult red-spotted newt. Is there a way to tell a male eft from a female eft?

Efts are sexually immature, and thus it's impossible to tell. Some may be on the brink of maturity and may be distinguishable. There can also be terrestrial-dwelling adults (which may be mistaken for efts), and they can be identified. In any case, if the animal is not showing signs of being male, it's hard to know if it's female or "just can't tell yet".
