Fossil vertebrae of an amphiumid salamander (Amphiuma sp.) are reported from a late Pleistocene (Rancholabrean NALMA) site of coastal Georgia. A suite of vertebral characters that identify the fossils to Amphiuma is given, as well as illustrations of important vertebral characters that distinguish the genus from sirenid salamanders. The presence of Amphiuma in the paleofauna indicates an aquatic habitat was present during the time of deposition.
