Taricha sierrae — Wahlert, 1952, Copeia, 1952: 30.
Hedgecock and Ayala, 1974, Copeia, 1974: 738-747, reported on genetic divergence and noted that Taricha torosa exhibits strong allozymic variation suggesting that is is composed of at least three geographic components, northern Taricha torosa torosa, southern Taricha torosa torosa and, Taricha torosa sierrae.

 Taricha (Gray, 1850) Pacific, or Western Newts
Taricha torosa are typically chocolate brown to tannish-brown dorsally, with yellow to burnt orange bellies, and highly granular skin.
Taricha granulosa are found along the western border of North America, from Alaska to California, and from sea level to 9,000 feet.
Taricha granulosa are the most aquatic species of the genus, and are occasionally found in water outside of the breeding season.

Instead, "Oregon" or "orange-bellied" newts are either rough-skinned newts (Taricha granulosa) or California newts (Taricha torosa), both collected from California.
Taricha granulosa granulosa: The rough-skinned newt ranges from light brown to olive to brownish-fl above with a sharply contrasting yellow to orange belly.
Taricha granulosa mazamae: Called the Mazama or Crater Lake newt, the darker pigmentation of the dorsum of this subspecies encroaches on the brighter ventral coloration and can also have heavy dark blotches on the belly.
