Two-banded Checkered-skipper
Pyrgus ruralis

Though many sightings are coastal, it's also found inland as far as the Arroyo Seco gorge.  So where to survey?  

Soberanes Canyon is the most accessible, and fairly reliable.  Malpaso Cyn is also good, for those who have access to the canyon (locked gate).
