This fascinating looking salamander is from the genus Bolitoglossa and is potentially new to science. It was discovered on a RAP survey in the Nangaritza region of southeastern Ecuador. Salamanders of this genus are rare, nocturnal amphibians and those found in Ecuador will mostly inhabit forests below 1000 m (3280 ft).
