1. Incorrect, this family is dicamptodontidae (Giant Salamanders), and sometimes the test has things that aren't on the list.
They shouldn’t, it’s against the rules.

They usually tend to put a couple of species on the tests that are significant in a genus/family like the green sea turtle etc but for the most part, tests wouldn't ask for anything that is not on the list. These very specific questions tend to show up more on invitationals, but for regionals, states, and nationals, it doesn't happen a lot.

Thats what I have seen on the tests. They have asked about specific species (ie Axlotl) but not ask for you to identify to the species name
