    No.  The mudpuppy family of salamanders, the proteidae (Greek for shape-changers) contains two genera, the necturus (Latin for swimming tail) and the Proteus (Greek for shape-changer again).  All five species of the necturus genus (Alabama waterdog, speckled waterdog, Neuse River waterdog, common mudpuppy, and dwarf mudpuppy) are only found in North America.  The single species of the Proteus genus, however, the olm, is native to Europe.
