In a reach of about 200 meters we saw a couple dozen and two gravid females. It was a mild, sunny day with lots of overhanging shade. The creek flow was steady at maybe 0.4 cfs, or 200 gpm.

Conservation Summary

  • Globally
    near threatened (NT) (Source: IUCN Red List)
    vulnerable (G3) (Source: NatureServe)
    Vulnerable. Occurs in California and western Oregon; substantial ongoing decline, apparently due to habitat alteration, impacts of airborne agrochemicals, and/or effects of exotic species, and because recolonization abilities may be greatly restricted by local extirpation patterns.
