Date notes: Certain on date, time is approximate - AM
Submitted by: smemily
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I was in Page, AZ in a McDonalds parking lot in the AM and this moth was on the sidewalk sunning. It was about 1.25" long, wings closed. I don't know that it was a moth (not butterfly) but it acted mothlike - seemed lethargic and mostly unwilling to move. It stuck around about 30 minutes before it flew away. The color was a pinkish (faded) red with gray and black detail. It occurred to me to google it now and I don't see any exactly like it online.
