Moved
Sorry to move this again, but I occasionally go back to earlier IDs to check myself,and this one is the fuzzier C. pilosa. The two are not always easy to separate even with specimens in hand, and less so with an imperfectly focused image.

Moved
Yes, but this is the less brightly colored version that has sometimes been called C. clara.
