Description

Found dead on side of path in Wildcat Canyon, above ground, dorsal side up. Minimal signs of injuries, save for a little bit of missing skin by leg, possibly caused by maggots. Do they usually die out in the open like this?

No obvious signs of injury. Closest stand of plants included poison hemlock. I wonder if it accidentally nibbled some of the delicate green shoots that seemed to emerge after the rain.

Very speedy, diving in and out of eucalyptus leaf litter. Too cowardly to catch it like http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/3446483 !
