Jefferson\'s Salamander? (ID)

East Bridgewater, MA

I've never seen one of these before, but I think this is the correct ID.

Am I right?

Thanks!

It looks like the photos online but there are a couple other possibilities:

I have never seen one that small - here in Colorado, our Salamanders are still tadpoles at that size!

It was indeed very tiny and there are other possibilities. I'm not sure how many people are experts on salamander IDing. :)

Thanks for your help.

neffman,
Did you try your local conservation people to get a definite ID?

No, I have moved on a bit in interest. I don't know anyone to ask for salamander IDs.
