Many thanks to Hank for alerting me to the presence of this species up there! I'm sure I never would have noticed they weren't fence lizards on my own.

Description

On summit of Mt. Diablo. This is a relic population found only on the main peak and North Peak. Preliminary DNA tests suggest they are most closely related to the population in Yolo County. Note the cell size. See Sceloporus occidentalis observation for comparison.
