Identification
Identified by the hook on the uncus from most Okanagana. The projection of the head is extensive, separating it from utahensis, and the lack of infuscation in the wings separates it from hesperia as do a few other technical details.
Range
Great Basin east to Colorado and potentially Kansas and Oklahoma. Records from California are likely misidentified.
Habitat
Great Basin Sage
Remarks
A subspecies called beameri has a taxonomic placement that is somewhat in contention and doesn't need to be discussed. Some treat is as a ssp. of striatipes, others as hesperia.
