All of these ^-K o. S « diminutive species of salamanders occur in wet forest in the mountains (875-1150 m) near the Guate- ^^ (£ ^ g mala-Honduras border. Characteristics of size, proportion, and coloration distinguish these new spe- = « (H w ^ cies from each other and their congeners. Members of the genus Nototriton inhabiting Guatemala and a. -S ■§ § S Honduras may be placed in one of two distinctive morphotypes. One group appears to be adapted to i cj 'S ^ ^ a semifossorial existence and has small nares, a narrow head, short Umbs, small hands and feet, and U ^ c/) o j^^j^g ^ ^^^^ ^^^^ mask; one of the new species belongs in this group. Members of the other group are -adapted for climbing and have larger nares, broader heads, longer limbs, larger hands and feet, and a \S conspicuous dark face mask; two of the new species belong in this group.
