Saw this little guy on the optional field trip a few weeks back, hanging out with his banana slug friend.
Found under log; skin very dry when found
Mostly Oregon, but with flecks of yellow maybe intermediate with Yellow-eyed.
Intermediate between xanthoptica and oregonensis, IMO.
Darker form than "yellow-eyed"
