Abstract: The Clouded Salamander, Aneides ferreus, is a terrestrial forest-dwelling salamander with a distribution in British Columbia limited to Vancouver Island and some surrounding small islands. It is typically found under the bark or within cracks of decomposing logs, under loose bark and other debris on the ground, and in talus. Courtship and mating take place in the spring and females lay small clutches of terrestrial eggs in cavities in decomposing logs in the early summer. The larval stage is passed in the egg, and young hatch in October as miniature replicas of the adults. Prey consists primarily of small terrestrial arthropods, especially insects. This salamander has been found in several seral stages from clearcuts to old-growth forests, and there is no indication that populations are threatened. However, because of uncertainties in estimating the sizes of populations, this conclusion should be treated with considerable caution. Surveys of old-growth forests are needed to establish estimates of population p
