3.5 miles S. of Willcox, Cochise County, Arizona, USA September 9, 2016 Size: ~ 18.5 mm
Came to U/V lights, believe this a Pyrota akhurstiana if so first for Sept. And didn't see any others that came to lights at night on the images posted. This is one of two caught, the other was a large ~23 mm specimen. Confirmation/correction, and further placement would be appreciated.
