I've noted a great deal of variability in how dark the "dark" form female can be. The one pictured at bottom left is an extreme example, while the one at bottom right is closer to the normal form. Also, there is a great deal of overlap between the normal form female and the male - they can be hard to tell apart based on the amount of dark brown on the upper wing surfaces. The female shown at top left is again, an extreme example. Many females are virtually indistinguishable from males in the field.
