1. The family is ambystomatidae. I thought we are only supposed to ID till the specificity of the list.
2. neoteny
3. Mole Salamander
4. small, permanent streams flowing through high-elevation pine or pine-oak woodland forests. It has also been found in streams in cleared pastures.

1. Incorrect, this family is dicamptodontidae (Giant Salamanders), and sometimes the test has things that aren't on the list.
2. Correct
3. Incorrect, the species given by you isn't in the dicamptodontidae family.
4. Correct

You can ask a question now.

1. Name the taxonomic group(genus or family) of the organism to the specificity of the list.
2. Name one genus that a lot of the species in this taxonomic group were reassigned to.
3. Does this group of organisms exhibit autonomy?
4. What is the clutch size and where are the eggs laid?

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
