Description

Probably impossible for anyone to tell from the photo, but this was an adult Dicamptodon ensatus. Skin fragments, body plan, remaining limbs were the basis for ID. Rough night for amphibs on Hwy 1 in Mendocino and Sonoma counties. Roadkill northern red-legged frogs, California red-legged frogs, rough skinned newts, and Sierran treefrogs.

Description from Wikipedia

The mole salamanders (genus Ambystoma) are a group of salamanders endemic to North America, the only genus in the family Ambystomatidae. The group has become famous due to the presence of the axolotl (A. mexicanum), widely used in research, and the tiger salamander (A. tigrinum, A. mavortium) which is the official amphibian of many states, and often sold as a pet.

No range data available.
