In the Oaş region from North-Western Romania, Montandon's Newt Triturus montandoni is occurring even at 200 m a.s.l. Although this is the lowest altitude at which the species was recorded in Romania, numerous individuals can be found outside this distribution area in very different habitats, including artificial ones. In the study region, Triturus montandoni never appears in the same habitat with the Common Newt Triturus vulgaris, since it is present either alone or with the Great Crested Newt Triturus cristatus, though Triturus vulgaris is widely spread in the neighbouring regions.
