Elada checkerspot - Microtia elada - Female
Madera Canyon, Pima County, Arizona, USA

I believe this is an elada checkerspot even though it is very lightly marked. It doesn't appear to have the orange spot on the head and its body markings look like elada. It was also with about 20 other elada checkerspots (tinys were present in the Canyon at a lower elevation). I added this image to show variation if it is indeed an elada.
