New To Oregon--Need and ID

Post by ermartin1619 »

Hi All!

I recently moved or again and I'm not yet familiar with the amphibian species here (any field guide recommendations?). I found a salamander last night and I'm curious what it could be. It was found in Lake Oswego Oregon on a sidewalk adjacent to a parking lot and a semi forested area with a lot of underbrush.

My guess is a juvenile Western Red-Backed, but my fiancé is convinced it's a Clouded (which I've read is unlikely). Here is my Observation on iNaturalist for you to take a look:

Let me know your thoughts!

Dunn's, Plethodon dunni, though they are usually close to moving water.
