Description

A phenotypically picta-type ensatina found in the wide zone of intergradation between picta and oregonensis in Humboldt County. In this area, individuals like this can co-occur with others that appear to be pure oregonensis. This beautiful specimen illustrates the inky dark splotches that gives the Painted Ensatina its name.
