How exciting! You have photog
How exciting! You have photographed Neolema ovalis, which was described by White in 1993. I hope I can find some when I'm down that way the end of this month. It is a species I have yet to add to my collection. Host plant is a day flower, Commelina sp.

 
It got away
It landed very shortly on a little tree at the prairie dog exhibit at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum - prob. not the host plant. But it disappeared before I could catch it. Good luck, I'll keep an eye out for more

 
Host plant should be Commelin
Host plant should be Commelina or possibly Tradescantia. Good luck!

or Neolema - Criocerinae is safe
looks like something new for the guide. Hope John Watts can identify it.
