____ Sulphur

It can be difficult distinguishing between an Orange Sulphur (Colias eurytheme) and a Clouded Sulphur (Colias philodice), and this photo is a good example. One expert identified it as a Clouded Sulphur and a different expert identified it as an Orange Sulphur. I already knew it was a Sulphur and I still don't know which one!

» ID’ed at BAMONA as “Colias philodice” or “Clouded Sulphur”
» ID’ed at BugGuide as “Colias eurytheme” or “Orange Sulphur”
