    1. Reviewed by Michael Graziano    Dec 29, 2005

    Action: changed name from "Gyrinophilus porphyriticus" to "Pseudotriton ruber "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "While the larvae can be easily confused, this animal is definitely Pseudotriton. Gyrinophilus have much longer, more truncate snouts and much smaller eyes relative to their head size."
