Ottawa, National Capital Region, Ontario, Canada July 27, 2011 Size: About 1 inch long.
From what I can see on BugGuide, I think this could be within Hyalymenus. It is on a milkweed leaf, 9:00 am, bright, sunny day. Found just outside the city in a field with many milkweeds as well as other plants, including shrubs, trees, raspberries, etc.
