Description: Oviposition sites and reproductive ecology of the southern-torrent salamander (Rhyacotriton variegatus) remain poorly documented. This species oviposits in cryptic locations making the detection of eggs difficult. Here we describe the discovery of 1 clutch of eggs of R. variegatus from northern California, which further expands our knowledge of their reproductive ecology.
Keywords: southern torrent salamander, Rhyacotriton variegatus, reproduction, clutch size, oviposition, communal oviposition, California
