Found in an arid area with scattered conifers, I think. This is in a Great Basin-type habitat and not in the Sierras.

sorry I took so long to come back to this one
I think you are correct, though I'm not sure how clear, nor exactly where the division between subspecies is.

Moved from Orangetips.

 
Hey David -
sorry to confuse the issue, but I got interested in these taxa and did a little more web research, eventually emailing Art Shapiro. He thought these images of a female were not nearly yellow enough for A. stella and thought the images and location were best for A. sara thoosa.... What do you think?
