The Blunt-headed Salamander (Ambystoma amblycephalum) is a mole salamander from high elevations (9000 ft above sea level) 15 miles west of Morelia, Michoacán, Mexico. It has both neotenic and terrestrial populations.
Neotenic populations are perennibranchiate and retain their fins. Neotenes are very long with extremely short, blunt heads and round eyes. They have relatively short, thick gills. Their coloring is dark brown-gray dorsally, with a lighter gray under-belly. They have small, dark marks on their head and back.
