Moved from Butterflies.

Pretty certain your ID is correct...
Not an expert of any kind, but after checking for any other similar-looking species in Pima County on Butterflies & Moths of North America (see reference here), it doesn't appear that there are any. I think these images could be moved to the species page without further speculation.

Beautiful
Thing.

I went out looking for Archilestris magnificus, a couple of which a friend had seen, and found this guy instead. Not bad.
