    The name Plethudon teyahalee (Hairston) cannot be applied to the member of the P. glutinosus complex as designated by Highton (1983). Biochemical data show that the population from which the type of teyahelee was taken consists of hybrids between local populations representing the P. jordani and P. glutinosus complexes, and thus cannot be applied to a member of either of those two species under Article 23(h) of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (1985). A new name, Plethodon oconaluftee, is proposed, and a new type is designated.
