The geographic range of Red Hills salamanders (Phaeognathus hubrichti) is restricted to the Red Hills region of south central Alabama, USA. They have been documented in only 6 counties in the state of Alabama (Covington, Crenshaw, Monroe, Butler, Barbour, Conecuh). The Alabama River demarcates the species' western-most boundary and the Conecuh River demarcates their eastern-most boundary. Although they appear to reside in adjacent areas to the north and south, their fossorial tendencies make their geographic range difficult to verify. The total area that is occupied by Red Hills salamanders is estimated to be approximately 25,500 hectares.
