Metadata (Data about data or how the map was made)

Occurs in western Washington and the Cascades. Probably in all forested (hardwood or coniferous) or brushy land that provides continuous shade and leaf litter leading to a well-developed humus layer in the soil. Does best on moist sites, usually with a hardwood overstory. Not found in grasslands or meadows. In this state, found below 6000 feet.

Core zones include all mesic forested zones west of the Columbia Basin and below Mountain Hemlock and Subalpine Fir. In all zones except for Interior Douglas-fir, fresh water/wetlands and forests of all types are good habitats; shrubs, mixed herb/shrub, and low-density development are adequate.
