Possible pink-edged Sulphur? - Colias

Possible pink-edged Sulphur? - Colias
Olive Lake, Grant County, Oregon, USA
July 8, 2015
There appeared to be several of these near the lake.
After looking in a field guide I think it is a Pink-edged Sulphur (Colias interior).
Thanks for any information you can provide

Western Sulphur and Pink-edged Sulphur
are very similar. Both apparently occur in Northern Oregon. This specimen has a strongly rimmed red central HW spot, light but some gray scaling of HW, brown smudge on leading edge of HW. and extensive pink edging of wings.
Neither of these species have been reported in BG for Oregon.
