Abstract

The Oklahoma salamander, Eurycea tynerensis, is an endemic species restricted to the superficial currents that exist in mountain streams of the Ozarks in Oklahoma, Missouri, and Arkansas. The results of our study show a close relationship between the salamander and the presence of rocks from the Ordovician/Silurian period. The small interstitial spaces created by the structure of this type of rock provide ideal habitat for the development of this neotenic species.
