Title: ●Injurious Wildlife Species; Listing Salamanders Due to Risk of Salamander Chytrid Fungus  
Abstract:

We will evaluate the Order Caudata to determine which salamander species should be listed as injurious to prevent the risk of introduction into the United States of Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans, a fungus that causes fatal infections in European salamanders. The fungus affects only salamanders and is not yet known to be found in the United States.
