Pretty Meloid - Epicauta abadona

Pretty Meloid - Epicauta abadona
Canoa Ranch Rest Stop along I-19 N, Pima County, Arizona, USA
July 28, 2013
Must be Epicauta abadona...it's nearly identical to the thumbnails below from the same locale. In fact, this may the same individual as in Margarethe's post...although we were at the rest stop a number of hours after her (and the day after Loren & Babs post). We were all in the area for the Arizona BugGuide gathering.

ID confirmed by J.D. Pinto: Epicauta abadona

A number of hours
and 4 whole years! They turn up in numbers every year

 
That's pretty funny, Margarethe!
I figured you had stopped on the way back from Pena Blanca that night...and we were a few hours behind you.

Guess I just wasn't payin' enuf attention! But I was just off by around 35064 hours :-)
