Salmar made the Ulumúri for his lord Ulmo, the great conches which produce the music of the sea.

In the index of The Silmarillion Salmar is described as a Maia, but it is unknown whether that entry was written by J.R.R. Tolkien or his son Christopher Tolkien. While there is no other text describing Salmar as one of the Maiar his status as a spirit who accompanied Ulmo but was not listed amongst the Valar would make that the logical conclusion.


In earlier conceptions of the legendarium (see: The History of Middle-earth) Salmar is often called by the title Noldorin, and sometimes Lirillo, and was envisioned as a Vala in the service of Aulë.
