This is a dorsal view of the abdomen (apex pointed up), which has been removed from the specimen, cleared in warm 5% KOH, and allowed to dry a bit. It's held steady by being placed onto the head of a small pin. Visible on top is the right paramere with prominent angular tooth on the dorsal apical corner (lower right in this view), characteristic of this species.

I collected dozens of males and females sweeping Artemisia filifolia. Reported hosts according to Schuh (2004)(1) are "Artemisia arbustorum [sic; probably meaning Artemisia arbuscula], A. dracunculus, A. tridentata, ...Chrysothamnus sp., Solidago sp." This would be an additional host species.
Det. as Europiella angulata (Uhler) by J. T. Botz, via dissection of genitalia and using the key in Schuh (2004).

Anyone using this photo to help identify similar-looking specimens, please be aware that Europiella consors (Uhler) has much the same distribution and according to Schuh (2004), "the great external similarity of these species therefore makes their recognition on the basis of distribution impossible.
