Coordinator notes: these can be a challenge to photograph, so nicely done! and this is another challenging group - a complex, really. "Mormon" Metalmark is darker above and not known from east of the Rio Grande. populations in your area have more orange above and are assigned to Apodemia mejicanus. Eriogonum jamesii v. jamesii hosts this species, too. Fun!
