Mormon metalmark - Apodemia virgulti - female Mormon metalmark - Apodemia virgulti - female

Some have the "virgulti" types as part of Apodemia mormo,
while other treatments have them as separate species. I don't know if they are really different or not, but the treatment followed at BugGuide has them different (are they regional color forms are different species?). So, I've moved this to be with the ones it is more like.

Moved from Mormon Metalmark.
