PROTECTION STATUS: Threatened
YEAR PLACED ON LIST: 2013
CRITICAL HABITAT: 4,451 acres in Travis and Williamson Counties, Texas
RANGE: Northwest Travis County and southwest Williamson County, Texas
THREATS: Degraded water quality, urban development, spring-flow declines, disturbance by humans and feral hogs
POPULATION TREND: Because Jollyville Plateau salamanders were described only recently and most of the known populations were discovered recently, little is known about the historical abundance of this species. However, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has cited “significant declines in abundance” for this species at four monitoring sites since its official discovery 10 years ago.
