Summary 2

The foothill yellow-legged frog (Rana boylii) is a small-sized 3.72–8.2 cm (1.46–3.2 in) frog from the Rana genus in the Ranidae family. This species can be found from northern Oregon, down California’s west coast, and into Baja California, Mexico.

They prefer to live in streams and rivers, and lay their eggs in masses attached...

Hastings NHR Notes 3

Although the Reserve seems to be outside of the IUCN range maps, it is likely to be there. However, it was last documented in Big Creek in 1975, and the year before that, in Blomquist Pond (which may have meant the outlet from the pond since R. boylii prefers running streams).

Need observations to confirm their continued presence.
