California Photo by Gerold Merker
Distribution: In our region, the Oregon Ensatina occurs along the northwestern coast of California from Sonoma County northward to the Oregon border.
Legal Status: Ensatina eschscholtzii oregonensis has no protected status in our region.
Taxonomic Note: There is some disagreement over the validity of this subspecies in the State of California. Based upon Stebbins, there are no pure oregonensis in California. He describes a large intergrade zone in northern California where oregonensis intergrades with other California Ensatina subspecies.
