This salamander was found in a small forest pond somewhat near the Oregon coast. In the area are many rough skinned newts and a small number of another type of salamander that I still can't find the species of. I'm guessing it is either the salamander species or a rough skinned newt.

It is a torrent salamander. Most likely this is the southern torrent salamander (Rhyacotriton variegatus)
