Hanging out on some thistle. I was initially attracted to the thistle due to the presence of a gorgeous Humm*ingbird (or Snow*berry) Clear*wing Moth, of which I was unfortunately unable to capture a decent shot. However, after it flew away, I noticed this guy. The overall shape and margin of the stripe make me think L. phyllopus. Is this correct?
