Austin American-Statesman Reports on Georgetown Salamander.

An October 18, 2011 article from the Austin American Statesman entitled “Salamanders and their federal ‘red tape’ latest to vex Williamson County officials” discusses the impending listing of the Georgetown Salamander (Eurycea naufragia) and includes and interview with biologist and Eurycea researcher Dr. Ben Pierce of Southwestern University. I’m sure we fellow biologists might agree that E. naufragia is more than just red tape!
