The Southern Two-lined Salamander is a small, stream-dwelling salamander that can be found throughout Mississippi. They can be found in wooded streams, seeps, swamps, and even far from water flows. Length is 2-3 inches (Powell et al., 2016). They have a wide range in the southeast US, and are morphologically similar to Northern Two-lined and Blue Ridge Two-lined species (not found in MS). They can be separated by counting costal grooves where the species overlap. Two-lined salamanders are orange or yellow, with two dark dorsal lines.
