Speyeria sp - maybe coronis? - Speyeria coronis - female

Speyeria sp - maybe coronis? - Speyeria coronis - Female
Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve, San Mateo County, California, USA
June 3, 2012
Found in a sunlit glade in a mixed coast redwood forest.

S. coronis and S. zerene are difficult and are frequently
confused, especially near the coast in northern California. However, I agree, this one looks like a female S. coronis. I think S. coronis is more likely to be seen early in the season as well (and females usually emerge after the males do - and this one is a June specimen).

Moved from Greater Fritillaries.
