Fischer's clawed salamander, Onychodactylus fischeri, is a lungless salamander found in Northeast Asia. It ranges through northeastern China, the Russian Far East, and the Korean Peninsula, but is only sporadically distributed within this range. Within South Korea, it is found chiefly in the high mountain valleys of Gangwon province, including the Gwangdeoksan and Daeseongsan regions. The adults feed on spiders, grubs, and insects. It is also known as the long-tailed clawed salamander. Order: Caudata, Family: Hynobiidae, Synonym: Onychodactylus rossicus Nikolsky, 1914.
