  Ambystomatidae   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Salamanders of the family Ambystomatidae, commonly called "mole salamanders," are widely distributed throughout most of North America.
The morphological characters given below are the ones standardly used to diagnose the salamander family Ambystomatidae and to assess its phylogenetic relationships to other salamanders.
The Ambystomatidae formerly contained the genera Dicamptodon and Rhyacotriton, both of which are now placed in their own taxonomic families (Dicamptodontidae and Rhyacotritonidae, respectively).

 Ambystomatidae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ambystomatidae is a family of salamanders belonging to the order Caudata in the class Amphibia.
The genera Dicamptodon and Rhyacotriton were formerly included in this family, but are now usually placed into their own families Dicamptodontidae and Rhyacotritonidae.
Recently, a large study of amphibian systematics (Frost et al., Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History, 297 (2006) has placed Dicamptodon back within Ambystomatidae, based on cladistic analysis.

 Obligation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In biology, the opposite of obligate is facultative, meaning a species is able to behave in a certain way and may do so under certain circumstances, but that it can survive without having to perform this certain behavior.
For example, species of salamanders in the family Proteidae are obligate paedomorphs, whereas species belonging to the Ambystomatidae are facultative paedomorphs.

 Ambystomatidae Family   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
The family Ambystomatidae is distinguished from other Idaho families of salamanders by the presence of transverse vomerine teeth
More obvious characteristics are the presence of costal grooves (vertical creases along the body), and the absence of nasolabial grooves
There are two representatives of the family Ambystomatidae here in Idaho: the Long-toed Salamander (Ambystoma macrodactylum) and the Tiger Salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum).

 Grzimeks Animal Life Encyclopedia
New evidence may reveal that a group of species or genera that were once believed to be mem­bers of one family are actually more closely related to another group or are not related to the family with which they for­merly were associated.
For example, salamanders in the fam­ilies Dicamptodontidae and Rhyacotritonidae formerly were placed in the Ambystomatidae.
At the family level, the greatest diversity is in the Nearctic region, where all families (except Hynobiidae) occur, and five families (Ambystomatidae, Amphiumidae, Dicamptodontidae, Rhya­cotritonidae, and Sirenidae) are endemic.
