Aquiloeurycea scandens

Aquiloeurycea scandens, commonly known as the Tamaulipas false brook salamander, is a species of salamander in the family Plethodontidae. It is endemic to Mexico and known from the El Cielo Biosphere in southern Tamaulipas.[1][3] There are also reports from San Luis Potosí and Coahuila, but these may well refer to other, as yet unnamed species.[3]

Its natural habitat is caves. Within the El Cielo Biosphere its habitat is well protected. It was once fairly common, but has not been seen after mid-1980s. Whether this reflects a genuine decline or low survey effort is not known.[1]
