The Dixie Cavern salamander is a species of salamander in the family Plethodontidae. It is endemic to the state of Virginia in the United States. It is a troglobitic species restricted to the Dixie Caverns. It was commonly confused with Wehrle's salamander and was merged with that species shortly after description, but a 2019 study reaffirmed it as a distinct species.
