          Abstract

          We report two new occurrence records for Jollyville Plateau Salamanders, Eurycea tonkawae Chippindale, Price, Wiens & Hillis, 2000, from an urbanized watershed in Travis County, Texas, USA. Eurycea tonkawae is listed as federally threatened under the Endangered Species Act of 1973 due to threats from urbanization, including degradation of water quality and quantity. These new records fill a distributional gap within its known range, highlight the importance of surveying historically neglected areas, identify unprotected populations, and encourage the discovery of new populations.
