Dwarf waterdogs (Necturus punctatus) are located in the Piedmont region of the Appalachian Highlands, and more commonly in the southern Atlantic Coastal Plain in the eastern United States. They are found in rivers and streams throughout eastern Georgia and reach as far north as Virginia. The westernmost boundary of their geographic range extends into the broad lowlands of the Triassic Basin in North Carolina. Dwarf waterdogs are present in the Chesapeake Bay region, but only in southeastern Virginia.
