Gyrinophilus porphyriticus (Green, ) Spring Salamander. Christopher K. Beachy 1. Historical versus Current Distribution. Spring salamanders (Gyrinophilus porphyriticus) range from the middle of Maine southwest along the Appalachian spine (Dunn, ; Brandon, c; French, ; Petranka, ).

Brandon (c) recognized four subspecies. The last site of the weekend was home to one of the rarest salamanders in the entire Appalachians – the Patch-nosed Salamander (Urspelerpes brucei).

They are known to feed on the following Salamander species: Pygmy Salamanders (Desmognathus wrighti), adult and larval Northern Two-lined Salamanders (Eurycea bislineata), Ocoee Salamanders, Jordan's Salamanders (Plethodon jordani), Southern Red-backed Salamanders (P.

serratus), Southern Appalachian Salamanders (P. oconoluftee), and Red. The purple color of young Spring Salamanders led to its former name, the Purple Salamander (Conn. Dept., ).
