Chimoptesis chrysopyla from the Presidio - Chimoptesis chrysopyla
Lobos Creek, Presidio, San Francisco County, California, USA
February 26, 2015
Size: 4-5 mm
ID'd by Jerry Powell as Chimoptesis chrysopyla based a collection of this individual. I think this species needs to be added to BugGuide. Attracted to UV light in restored coastal dune scrub (lupines, coyote brush, Ericameria ericoides) adjacent to riparian woodland (coast live oak, willow, alder).
