     The mountain forms and males are darker than females and checkerspots of the dry basin and range country of the West.  The ground color of the male is dark brown, its spots vanilla except for the outermost ones, which are orange.  Orange bars occur near the forewing tip.  The female’s underside forewing is light orange, with yellow spots.  The hindwing shows a black chain and veins against a creamy yellow background.
