This subject came to a mercury vapor lamp set-up at 35°48'49.0"N 106°40'58.0"W, 7339 ft elevation, Jemez Springs 7.5' quadrangle, near a cabin on Spruce Loop, Sandoval Co., NM. Many other images from this event are posted. I collected representative specimens of most, and can follow up with high resolution images of selected ones if needed. Size is determined from the sheet it's on having 80 by 100 threads per inch.
