Whoa, thanks, David.
I didn't know we had these in OC, but they do show up in the local b'fly bible by Orsak.

 
Was just skimming thumbnails and this one caught my eye.
On a side note, I have a sneeking suspicion that when the molecular work starts coming out on this group, that "Pyrgus" communis and closest kin (roughly - most of the American Malvaceae feeders) will get themselves moved into Heliopetes, or at least removed from Pyrgus - just a hunch :0)
