Dicamptodon ensatus - If you find one, look but don't touch. Oils, salts, soaps, perfumes, etc. on our hands can be toxic to salamanders because they absorb materials through their skin.

Description

In the French Alps - in the grass at the edge of a field. I'm certainly no expert, but a little research tells me it's probably a Lady Bird spider, either Eresus sandaliatus, or E. cinnaberinus. Sometimes the female eats the male. Sometimes the babies consume the mother.

Thank you benphalan for pointing out the coloration difference in the rear legs that appears to ID this as E. kollari. ( Eresus cinnaberinus has been divided into three species, one of which is E. kollari)

Hōlei. On the cool, misted slopes high above Kanaio, small pockets of native species have survived centuries of logging, grazing, harvesting and the competition of invasive species. The hōlei is one of the species found in these pockets in the area known as Auwahi. Once valued for its fragrant blossoms and the yellow dye derived from its bark and roots for tapa, the hōlei is now listed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a candidate for endangered or threatened species status. The hōlei has its benefactors. Efforts are underway in the Auwahi region to protect and expand these pockets of native plants. Fences now keep out the grazers and pigs, and the kikuyu grass that chokes everything in its reach, is being removed. Seeds are gathered and germinated. Keikis are planted and loved. This once-rich forest may thrive again, to the benefit of species such as the hōlei.

There are many of these a`ali`i In Haleakala Crater, on the Halemauu trail, just east of Holua Cabin. At least I hope they're a`ali`i! The leaves are significantly smaller than those of the a`ali`i in the Auwahi region. But these seed pods are pretty hard to miss! I wonder if these are a different subspecies, or if they are the same species, but have merely adapted to the much harsher crater environment.
