Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: we watched this land on the rock, and it was still very hard to find. blended so perfectly. dusk but still very warm in canyon, a little breeze now and then high day 76, night forties low. dry some blooms. the butterfly's were going to flowers that were not open yet to try and get nectar. they stayed a long time on them so they must have been getting some. the moths did this also. had not noticed this before.
