The index of The Silmarillion lists Salmar as a Maia, though the provenance of this entry is unknown as no other texts describe Salmar as being one of the Maiar. However, as he is a spirit who accompanied Ulmo without being regarded as one of the Valar, the conclusion that Salmar was a Maiar seems logical.
Earlier versions of the legendariumEdit
In earlier conceptions of the legendarium discussed in The History of Middle-earth, Salmar is often identified by the title Noldorin (sometimes "Lirillo" or "Golthadriel" in Gnomish). He was envisioned as a Vala in the service of Aulë.
