Abstract

214 A survey of major Eucalyptus stands along the California coast south to Half Moon Bay, San Mateo County and north to Eureka, Humboldt County has failed to reveal additional populations. This restricted distribution may in part be determined by local climatic conditions. The San Francisco Bay area receives near daily inundation of fog in the summer and considerable rain dur- ing winter. As a result, the local cryptozoa remains relatively moist throughout the year. Eucalyptus groves to the north and south do not get a consistent fog perfusion and therefore tend to have nearly dry leaf litter. The small size of the Stinson Beach population suggests the introduction to be recent. In San Francisco where populations are well established, densities of A. sylvaticus approach several hundred per square meter (personal observa- tions). I would like to thank D. Chivers of the California Academy of Sciences for providing useful discussion and critically reading the manuscript. REFERENCES BOUSFIELD, E. L. & J. T. CARLTON, 1967.
