There is a book called "The butterflies of Southern California" by T. and
J. Emmel.  It was published by the LA County Natural History Museum back in
1973.  It has color photos of the adults and drawings of the larvae and
pupae.  It covers San Luis Obispo, Kern, and San Bernardino Counties south
to Mexico.  I don't know if it is still available.
