  • location   Parque nacional Lagunas de Zempoala (Mexico)
  • family Plethodontidae
  • order Caudata
  • class Amphibia
  • notes   This taxon is apparently of uncertain taxonomic validity - it might represent a colour morph of Pseudoeurycea leprosa. Typical individuals of the latter species were found in syntopy with the individual depicted here, which clearly stood out and shows all morphological characteristics which are diagnostic for P. tlilicxitl.
