The Oklahoma Salamander (Eurycea tynerensis) is a species of salamander in the Plethodontidae family. It is endemic to the United States. Its natural habitats are temperate forests, rivers, and freshwater springs. It is threatened by habitat loss. More

geographic distribution of Oklahoma salamanders currently is uncertain. They have been considered to range throughout the Springfield Plateau of northwestern Arkansas, northeastern Oklahoma, and southwestern Missouri (Dundee, 1965b; Conant and Collins, 1998; Petranka, 1998). More

We collected Oklahoma salamanders under the bridge of OK Hwy 10 approximately 1.3 km downstream from Dundee's site, but our site is threatened by flooding from Grand Lake. Damming of creeks on private land for watering of cattle and recreational use also threatens many sites. More

We continued our studies (3,5) of Oklahoma salamander habitat during 1989 and 1991. From the observed local conditions, these were years of greater precipitation, greater stream flow, and more elevated ground water than in our previous studies conducted in 1988. More
