One adult, with 21 costal grooves and very little mottling on the ventral. Location was the upper reaches of a southwest facing ridge where the sun had been shining on the hillside for a couple of hours. I lifted a couple dozen pieces of thin shale rock flakes on this hillside before finding this one V&R Salamander.
