going by the tip of the tail it should be Lanza's Salamander however given that species rather limited distribution then alpine salamander is much more likely
It's like looking into the face of our amphibious ancester.
I know what you are refering to, the alpine salamander should have a pointed, rather than rounded, tip to the tail. However, the tail is too long and the parotid glands too large to be a Lanza's salamander. The parotid glands are the swellings behind the eyes. These can excrete poisons which make the salamander unpalatable.
