Experimental support for aposematic
coloration in the salamander Ensatina eschscholtziixanthoptica: implication for mimicry of Pacific newts.
Chemical defense (toxic and unpalatable) in some taxa is correlated with aposematic
coloration (Cott 1940, Cott and Benson 1970, Guilford 1990, Dumbacher and Pruett-Jones 1996).
It is questionable if aposematic
coloration is involved as the snake is not known to be poisonous and is reluctant to bite.

While diurnal velvet ants have conspicuous aposematic
color patterns, such as those in the genus Dasymutilla, nocturnal species are small and inconspicuous.
Orange has been suggested to be an aposematic
warning color in the larvae of some marine organisms (e.
