Notes

At least 3 adults in a crack getting the last rays of sun at 5pm. At 7pm they had gone slightly deeper in the crack and were joined by a T. elegans elegans. The crack is only a few feet above and way from water and I imagine this was their nightly refugia. The elegans was resting its head on a couchii tail.
