Notes

This species has been redefined as Batrachoseps altasierrae.

Flipped under rock right next to small creek, so that water from creek made the leaf litter moist. Difficult to ID, but micro- and macro-habitat matched B. altasierrae, it falls within the B. altasierrae range, and appeared slighter bulkier than B. gregarius seen earlier in day.
