Besides annual flowers, she includes a sampling of Reviews: Fens are an important wetland type in the mountains of California. Fens are permanently saturated wetlands, receiving significant water and nutrients from a ground source of water.

Ground water fed fens are widespread in the California mountains of the Sierra Nevada, coast range, and southern Cascades. Masta says what we discovered is known as the Northwest Forest Scorpion, commonly found in the foothills of the Cascades in Oregon, Washington and regions of Northern California.

They have. The northern end of the California Coast Ranges overlap the southern end of the Klamath Mountains for approximately 80 miles on the west.

They extend southward for more than miles to where the coastline turns eastward along the Santa Barbara Channel, around the area of Point the southern end meets the Los Angeles Transverse Ranges, or Sierras de los Angeles. The species is nocturnal, but may enter warm sheltered places in the cold days of fall to hibernate.

The Northern Scorpion is rarely known to sting people. Scorpions hunt and feed on insects and other small prey that they can get their claws around.

The sting injects a dose of paralyzing venom similar to that of spiders. Even if stings do occur, these are usually just a painful irritation, because none of our known scorpions have fatal venom. The Buthidae family includes all of the world’s most venomous scorpions, such as deathstalker and fat-tailed scorpions with potent stings, but Australia’s buthids are much smaller, and victims of their stings don’t usually require medical assistance.

All scorpions are venomous. The sting you feel is the venom. But what I think you mean is, are there any scorpions in California that are *dangerously* venomous to humans. The answer depends on the person being stung. For the overwhelming majority of people, the sting of North American scorpions is no more serious than that of a bee or wasp.

Although we tend to think of scorpions as inhabiting desert areas, there is a species of scorpion found primarily in western North Carolina. Vaejovis carolinianus (Figure 1, Figure 2), more commonly called the "southern unstriped scorpion" or "southern devil scorpion."Its body is more uniformly brown and about one inch in length when fully grown.
