Great!
I have a few specimens of this species in my collection (from Calgary). Apparently it appears to be seasonally common in open grassland in my area.

 
From "Bow River Cliffs"...
"Bow River Cliffs" listed on label as specific location.
See if you can find a host plant. Mike

 
Locality data
Hmmm..never collected any from the Bow River area..most of my specimens came from Nosehill Park, which is predominantly native shortgrass prairie mixed with some disturbed, nonnative vegetation. Will try to find some more individuals of this species if I'm still around Calgary this summer.
