So this might be a little iffy as to my request due to forum rules, and if it is, I apologize.

I have probably about 80% convinced myself that I am going to do a salamandering trip to the southern Appalachians in March. I'm close enough (6-8 hours) that it is doable, but having never been there myself, I'm largely flying blind (looking at range maps and trying to figure out areas). I would like to find as many species as possible in that week, particularly ones I would not be able to see in Mississippi, which appears to be most of them.

In connection with the Year of the Salamander, I'm doing my own year of the salamander and trying to hit as many salamander species in a year and photographing them on white as part of the Meet Your Neighbours (Meet Your Neighbours: An International Nature Photography Project Celebrating Common Species Everywhere) project.

The general list I came up for that area is this (I'm using the Conant and Collins field guide and realize that they don't recognize some of the recent splits). If there are any species that I basically have no chance of finding or ones I should be sure to try to find, let me know. And if there are general areas in NC/TN I should focus on, I would love to hear that (although, if you need to PM me, that's fine).
