This salamander is a tiny, slim creature. It is quite picky and around the thickness of your pinky finger. It exclusively inhabits a region of 116 square kilometers (45 square miles), at an elevation of roughly 1200 meters (4,000 ft), in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
They occasionally climb trees and graze on a variety of invertebrates. They are terrestrial species frequently found in wet, vegetated forest areas, hiding beneath logs or rocks. The IUCN has given the species the status of “near threatened.” Because of its small range, careful population monitoring is required.
