Interestingly, this was not in a dune habitat, but rather in sandy-soiled coastal grassland, chaparral, and oak woodland.

Lesser Slender Salamander (Batrachoseps minor)

Observer

bewilderbeast

Date

January 2017

Description

Found within a steep wooded canyon with closed canopy Bay Laurel, Madrone, Tan Bark Oak, Live Oak, Sycamore and Maple.

The forest floor was made up mainly of leaf litter and woody duff with some smaller fallen branches and exfoliated bark.

Compared to adjacent seepages and creek areas bordered by mossy talus, the hillside was free from the dense berry and poison oak bramble which is more typical of undisturbed mesic forests in the region.

The animal was found within a dark and relatively dry canyon under a large fallen log, directly within the trough of the draw.

Attempted to spring away with its tail when uncovered.

Many Ensatina were also seen, including a mated pair and several gravid females. This was the only Batrachoseps I encountered in a about an hour of searching at this locale.
