Size: Approximately 1 inch
Specimen appeared to have a blue/greenish hue that did not appear on the photos. I found it underneath a rock on the N face of a Hill in the morning. It stayed quite still and didn't respond to me 'testing' it with a stick. I left it to be and it was gone a couple of hours later... Location of picture is 37.55.29N, 120.11.09W... :)

hard to see in pic

That was my assumption...
I searched around a bit and thought that it looked to be closest to that specimen.
