Abstract

A new species, Colias johanseni, is described. This species has male androconia similar to Colias meadii Edwards, 1871, and many palaearctic, neotropical, and ethiopian species, but the wing pattern is generally similar to that of Colias hecla Lefèbvre, 1836. Thus far, it has been found only on dry tundra at Bernard Harbour, N.W.T., Canada.
