Albanerpeton is an extinct genus of salamander-like lissamphibian found in North America and Europe. Members of the genus had a robust head and neck which likely allowed them to actively burrow, and they lived in a wide range of environments. This genus of amphibian was the last of its order, surviving until the late Pliocene in southern Europe, and into the Early Pleistocene (Gelasian) of northern Italy [1] and likely became extinct when the region developed its present Mediterranean-type climate.
