Orange Sulphur, White Form - Oklahoma - Colias eurytheme - female

Orange Sulphur, White Form - Oklahoma - Colias eurytheme - Female
Bartlesville, Washington County, Oklahoma, USA
October 1, 2007
A pale green/blue butterfly. No open wing shot - I followed it for several minutes but it never showed me the tops.

Moved
Moved from Clouded Sulphur.

I suspect Colias eurytheme
The shape of wings and wide dark border showing through look more like this other species to me. They can be confusingly similar.

 
Correction made
David,
Thanks for the help. I had placed several photos of this species in the wrong area and was duly corrected. I thought I had gotten them all but missed this one. I appreciate the help!
DJ

Open Wings
These kind will rarely open their wings for a good shot. It's a Sulphur Butterfly, but the rare White Form Female that happens once in awhile. This one appears to be a Clouded Sulphur. Compare:
