Amphiuma
Amphiuma is a genus of aquatic salamanders, the only extant genus within the family Amphiumidae /æmfɨˈjuːmɨdiː/. They are also known to fishermen as "conger eels" or "Congo snakes", which are zoologically incorrect designations. The Amphiuma has one of the largest amounts of DNA in the living world, around 25 times more than a human.

"Population Genetics of Amphiuma means and Siren lacertina in Central F" by Anna C. Deyle
Population structure can be defined as a difference in the frequencies of alleles among populations, and it is often caused by barriers to dispersal. I used mitochondrial DNA sequences to examine the population structure of two large, aquatic salamanders, Amphiuma means (the Two-Toed Amphiuma) and Siren lacertina (the Greater Siren), at two spatial scales in peninsular Florida. Both species appear to have similar life histories, including poor dry land dispersal capabilities, and I hypothesized that they would exhibit significant population structure at both broad and fine scales. Wetland loss and landscape fragmentation are certain to have caused decreases in abundance and even extirpation of local populations of both species. Understanding current levels of genetic diversity is important in conservation efforts, particularly if individuals must be translocated in the future. A portion of the cytochrome b gene was analyzed for 34 Amphiuma means and 21 Siren lacertina sequences. A neighbor-joining tree and haplotype network showed that A. means exhibited statistically significant population structure at the broad, but not the fine scale. The lack of structure at the fine scale was attributed to periodic flooding among drainage basins in the low-lying study area. The same analyses showed that S. lacertina did not exhibit statistically significant population structure at the broad scale (analyses were not conducted at the fine scale because of low sample size). The difference in broad-scale population structure between the two species is the result of a difference in gene flow, which in turn, can be the result of a difference in effective population size (Ne), female dispersal capability and/or behavior, chance of bait-bucket transfer, or biogeographic history. The best of these possible explanations seems to be a difference in biogeographic history. For the two sites from which both species were sampled, estimated population divergence date was 3.3-6.4 million years ago (mya) for A. means and 0.04-0.5 mya for S. lacertina. The large difference in estimated divergence dates suggests that S. lacertina colonized peninsular Florida from somewhere else following a glacial sea level rise or an interglacial sea level fall, at a time when A. means was already present in refugia within peninsular Florida. This is the first study to explicitly examine the population genetics of A. means and S. lacertina, and future studies should examine their population genetics range wide, to elucidate how gene flow and/or historical biogeography may have contributed to population structure elsewhere.

Animal A Day!: Two-toed Amphiuma
Amphiuma means The Two-toed Amphiuma is actually one of the longest Salamanders in the world, and the longest in the United States, capable of reaching lengths of 3-4ft! You can find these long, eel-like Amphibians in the slow moving, often stagnant waters of the southeastern parts of the country. Though they are sometimes referred to as "Conger Eels" or "Congo Snakes," they are still Amphibians.
