Observation notes: Mostly sunny, very dry, slight breeze, temp. in lower 70s F. One seen nectaring on dandelion at ~9,400 ft elevation. Not sure what is going on with the left antenna.

Coordinator notes: that antenna is weird, some kind of deformity (?). the other odd thing is the lack of a central band on the VHW. if you compare this one to your other photos of Chryxus, you may see that most have a well-developed band that arches from the costa toward the inner edge. this one has none of that; also no "bird beak" profile. There's nothing else it can be, but something to keep an eye on, perhaps related to environmental (i.e., temperature?) changes. thanks for documenting it!
