The Dayang newt (Cynops orphicus) is a rare species of salamander in the Salamandridae family, endemic to China. It is known from Jiexi County in eastern Guangdong from where it was collected in 1936 (more specifically, from Dayang, which gave it the common name) and described as a new species in 1983. More recently, it has also been found from Dehua County in central Fujian.
