Nice alligator lizards... They look like the California alligator lizard (Elgaria multicarinata muticarinata) to me. Definitely in the multicarinata complex, could be an integrade with the Orgegon alligator lizard (Elgaria multicarinata scincicauda). Definitely not Elgaria multicarinata webbii, the San Diego alligator lizard and only other Elgaria muticarinata subspecies native to CA. Since you collected them yourself from the same location they would make a great locality pure breeding project even if they are integrades. You’d be fine just calling them ‘Penn Valley California alligator lizards’. Not sure how to distinguish multicarinata and scincicauda, they are very similar so it would be difficult to prove an integrade. Good luck with them, very underrated pet lizard.
