There were a lot of them. Found near a dried up-creek off of a hiking trail.

Moved from ID Request.

Looks like Chlosyne nycteis to me.

Could you crop the photo so the insect takes up more of the frame? It's a good shot but will probably be frassed in its present form.

Thank you so much for your ID
