Can salamander larvae survive outside water ?

I would like to communicate with anyone that has keep any species of
lungless salamander larvae (Plethodontidae) alive for long periods of time where the gills were outside water--perhaps in a high humidity moist environment.

I also need information on the critical thermal requirements for salamander
LARVAE species--not adults.    Data based on experimentation rather than
field notes is most needed.
