  • notes   Aneides ferreus and Aneides vagrans are suspected to be morphologically similar, and biochemical studies are recommended for reliable identification. Nevertheless, the individual examined differed from juvenile A. vagrans from the south bank of Smith River. When assessing both together, this individual possessed chunkier body, broader feet, shorter tail, and less distinctive contrast between dark dorsal and grayish venter noticed. Dorsal black with copper snout and copper-cream sprinkles, but no marbling. It was Discovered under bark of toppled Douglas Firs. Log possessed firm interior, loose bark, and rested above soil, supported by its odd angle of collapse.
