Ochlodes agricola nemorum (Boisduval, 1852)
Rural Skipper or the Farmer
This subspecies of agricola is a paler, more orange skipper of the Sierra Nevadas. It flies from May to mid-July as a single brood. In the Systematics book (p.21), Emmel, Emmel, and Mattoon restricted the type locality to the Queen Lily Campground near Belden in Plumas County, California. I've seen it at mid-elevations on the western end of the Sherman Pass Road, but it does get into southern California in Kern county.
