Notes

In the past, I found several adults of this species at this particular location. Then I hit a period of several years without a sighting. I started to think they were extirpated. This past year I found three young individuals, two of which were newly metamorphed. I don't know what was going on with the population, but it has appeared to rebound a little bit.
