Butterfly #1 - Speyeria

Butterfly #1 - Speyeria
Railroad Grade Trailhead, Apache County, Arizona, USA
September 21, 2019

Moved to Speyeria for expert attention.
Moved from ID Request.

Not sure if this specimen will be identifiable but let's see what the experts can do.

Looks like...
... one beat-up butterfly. Certainly a fritillary. Possibly Speyeria cybele - Great Spangled Fritillary, which would make it a good find in Arizona.
