 Salamandridae
Salamanders of the family Salamandridae are informally subdivided into two major subgroups, the "true salamanders" (includes genera Chioglossa, Lyciasalamandra, Mertensiella and Salamandra) and the newts (includes all remaining extant genera).
Newts of the family Salamandridae are unlike all other salamanders in having rough-textured skin that is not slimy.

It was once classified in the genus Triturus (as were several other salamandridae that now have their own genera) and is occasionally referred to in older books as Diemyctylus viridescens.
Also, among the Salamandridae the only genera to exhibit any neoteny are Notophthalmus and Triturus (which is itself polyphyletic); the phylogenetic separation of the three groups can be seen in the accompanying chart.
All members of Salamandridae for which data is available are known to have toxic and/or noxious skin secretions(Duellman & Trueb, 250).

The order comprises 10 families, among which are newts and salamanders proper (family Salamandridae) as well as hellbenders, mud puppies, and lungless salamanders.
In higher forms, fertilization is usually internal; males of such forms often produce a spermatophore, or sperm case, which the female takes into her body through the cloacal opening.
Breeding often occurs in the water, but certain members of the Salamandridae and most species of the Plethodontidae families breed on land.

This taxon includes the newts, a group of rough-skinned species in the salamander family Salamandridae.
Salamanders are distinguished from other amphibians (frogs and caecilians) most obviously by the presence of a tail in all larvae, juveniles and adults, and by having limbs set at right angles to the body with forelimbs and hindlimbs of approximately equal size (except in the family Sirenidae, which lacks hindlimbs).
Living salamanders are divided taxonomically into ten taxonomic families based upon phylogeny and anatomical features: Ambystomatidae (mole salamanders), Amphiumidae (amphiumas), Cryptobranchidae (hellbenders), Dicamptodontidae (Pacific giant salamanders), Hynobiidae, Plethodontidae (lungless salamanders), Proteidae (mudpuppies), Rhyacotritonidae (torrent salamanders), Salamandridae (true salamanders and newts) and Sirenidae (sirens).

Some characteristics of Salamandridae: Have usually a drier skin than most salamanders.
Many salamandrids produce toxic sectrections (tetrodotoxins) in their skin glands and these species are usually brightly colored (aposematic coloration).
There are 4 main distributions: west coast of North America, eastern North America, west to eastern Europe including northwestern Africa, and eastern India to Japan.

Abstract.---Phylogenetic relationships were examined within the salamander family Salamandridae using 18 species representing 14 salamandrid genera and six outgroup taxa from the families Ambystomatidae, Dicamptodontidae, Plethodontidae, and Proteidae.
Mitochondrial DNA sequences encoding the 12S and 16S ribosomal RNA and the intervening valine transfer RNA provided 431 phylogenetically informative nucleotide sequence positions from a multiple alignment of approximately 1,000 bases per species.
