Abstract: The dorsal pattern of six populations of Salamandra salamandra was studied. Several quantitative characters of the dorsal spots (number, area, perimeter, axes length, co-ordinates of the centre of gravity, etc.) were analysed using computer assisted technology. The study of these characters results in unexpected clustering of the populations. The population of Macizo de Pefialara, which is considered within S. s. bejarae seems to be closely related to the S. s. almanzoris populations.
