Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This apparent butterfly (based on antennae) was quite active, flying to mud and then quickly flying away. This is the only photo I managed. It was a sunny, cool morning at about 6,000 feet in elevation. The area was rocky mountains covered with pines and junipers with a few oaks and cottonwoods.
