Okanagana hesperia
This species is west of O. balli (MT to AZ, including CO).There is another illustration of this species on http://bugs.bio.nau.edu/Homoptera/azhomoptera.htm

It is also known as Tibicinoides hesperius, but the chief difference "lies in the very evident median transverse suture of the fore wings"; but this is apparent only in the slightly darker membrane at the wing base, and so I would recommend continuing it in Okanagana.

Thanks for the ID Andy.
