So from what you say the specie should occur right here in my backyard? Lower Amador County near Sacramento County? The reason I figured going back to the same area is after 7-8 years of field collecting and 2-3 years of research I have only observed that one individual. However all my past research and collecting has been with larger specie such as Pituothis melanoleucus and Lampropeltis getulus californiae so to be honest in my field collecting days I was not looking for “Worms” However I will also add we were looking for Crotelus atrox When the C. Bottae was found in a rotten log “Almost over looked do to its size and coloration closely matching the rotting log. Were I currently reside is only a couple blocks from the N. Comanche Gate at about 200’ above sea level. Is C. Bottae known to occur at such a low elevation. Our summers here are very harsh, while not as bad as S. California it gets hot “90-105F” and the ground here gets absolutely bone dry. This is why I conduct my searches in the forest as at 6000’ it still gets dry but temps are more like 70 or maybe 80F in the summer and a good share of the rivers don’t completely dry up as they do here giving the specie that like moist ground somewhere to go.
