Harford's Sulphur - Colias harfordii - male

Harford's Sulphur - Colias harfordii - Male
Figueroa Mountain Road, Figueroa Mountain, Santa Barbara County, California, USA
July 4, 2010

based on appearance and location,
I would say Colias harfordii. It is very similar to both Orange and Clouded. Clouded is unlikely in that area, and this doesn't look quite like an Orange to me. The dark band showing through from above is a bit wide for C. harfordii, but not unusually so.

Moved from ID Request.

Harford's Sulphur
Thanks for clearing that up.
