Eurycea wilderae — Blue Ridge Two-lined Salamander
It sure is a pleasure to look for salamanders in this part of the world. Everywhere you look, there's a different species! It's much more challenging to identify them than to discover them, in general. But this beautiful species is quite distinctive. This one was under a log in a very shallow stream (pretty much just muck). I also saw another under a log on a small hillside.
