Dayflying moth. Nectaring on Brodiaea howellii. I think this is Euclidia cuspidea, MONA 8731, but maybe someone can verify. Moth is actually Euclidia ardita per Paul Hammond.

Moved from Euclidia.

Moved from Toothed Somberwing.

Matches Jim Vargo's Specimen.....
....and several photos from eastern Canada which are quite gray but identically marked. I wonder if the species is dimorphic.

This moth is Euclidia ardita, MONA 8732. ID by Paul Hammond at Oregon State University.
