Western Red-backed Salamander

Plethodon vehiculum

The Western Red-backed Salamander, like the Washington Salamander, prefers moist habitat away from the sun. Western Red-backed Salamanders can be identified by the yellowish dorsal stripe reaching the end of the tail, the stripe’s smooth margin and the white specks in the darker areas at the sides (6).
