Beni Snassen's Fire Salamander was discovered in 2007 and is strictly localized on the Beni Snassen Massif (North-eastern Morocco). In this massif its habitat is threatened by habitat loss, due to severe overgrazing and deforestation. This species is very rare and it is possible that only few hundreds of adults remain in the wild. For this reason immediate conservation actions should be started.
