Fort Tejon, California, USA.
Probably closest to S. varia and perhaps S. fulvescens. Occasionally hybridizes with S. varia#R#R. Race lucida very pale, might be specifically distinct. Genetic study indicated that nominate race and much darker caurina represent two well-differentiated lineages connected by narrow hybridization zone in region of low population density in NC California, suggesting that caurina also is a distinct species#R. Five subspecies recognized.
