Default Taricha defensive posturing-Petranka book

My last question on the Petranka book:

If anyone has this book, can you please turn to page 463? (ha ha I used to teach)
Second column, first full paragraph beginning with "Taricha granulosa and T. torosa are often difficult to distinguish...A behavioral difference is also useful. When assuming an intense unken posture...T. torosa holds the tail tip out straight, whereas sympatric T. gran curls the tail tip into a single coil..."

Now turn to page 469 and look at the picture (fig. 297) labeled "Taricha granulosa defensive posturing..."
Is this just mislabeled or am I missing something?

Thanks

Coming soon to a post near you: Questions about the Duellman and Trueb book
