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.

This is one of my favorite Hynobiids and I'd never seen an adult (other than in pics) until yesterday, so it was quite a thrill Click the image to open in full size. The adult pictured above, however, doesn't look like the ones I'd had in mind, which are purplish with yellow spots as in the link below. I've just read that H.kimurae and H.naevius (Buchi Salamander? Spotted Salamander?) are sometimes confused...and there are significant regional variations of each.

Some info and pics can be found at this site:

And there's a distribution map located here:
