Fern bank salamander

The Fern bank salamander is classified as Data Deficient (DD), inadequate information to make a direct, or indirect, assessment of its risk of extinction.

Schmidt (1953) considered Fern Bank salamanders to be a subspecies of the supposedly widespread Texas salamanders (E. neotenes), and Sweet (1978a,b) synonymized this taxon under E. neotenes without recognizing subspecies. Chippindale (1995), Chippindale (2000), and Chippindale et al. (2000) resurrected the name E. More
