A new variant of Plethodon wehrlei in Kentucky and West Virginia
A new variant of Plethodon wehrlei was discovered in Letcher County, Kentucky and Summers County, West Virginia. The specimens from Kentucky represent a new state record for this species, and extend the known geographic range of the species by 85 km. This variant differs from other P. wehrlei in its possession of large, yellow spots on the dorsum.
