In the index of The Silmarillion Salmar is described as a Maia, an angelic being. It is unknown whether that entry was written by Tolkien or his son Christopher. While there is no other text describing Salmar as one of the Maiar, his status as a spirit who accompanied the Vala Ulmo to Valinor, but was not listed among the Valar, would make that the logical conclusion.
