Larch Mountain salamander

Plethodon larselli

Description:

Unfortunately poor photo. Undersides have a pink blush.

Habitat:

This one was found under rocks on a steep talus slopes in the Columbia River Gorge. It is a terrestrial species dependent on late-seral forest conditions or combinations of rocky substrates, soils, and vegetation that provide suitable cool, moist microhabitat conditions

Notes:

This is one of the easternmost occurrences in the Gorge, as the climate becomes increasingly arid as one moved eastward.
