Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: The butterfly was going for nectar at a New Mexico Thistle, cirsium neomexicanum, along the roadside.

Coordinator notes: I think you have the correct ID. I have difficulty distinguishing Viereck's from Deva and usually rely on a good dorsal shot. but Glassberg points to the HW fringe as gray in Viereck's and white on Deva. yours clearly has a gray fringe, so I agree with Viereck's.
