Coordinator notes: Your ID is correct...a newly emerged male...perhaps off of that flower spike which looks like Prince's Plume...one host plant but can't quite determine that from the photo (and its about done blooming). Very nice photo...beckerii is tough to photograph close-up as they are a rather nervous species. Mike
