Field notes and information

ARIZONA April 2015: This was widespread and common during our travels. It is a delightful delicate little butterfly, frequenting water courses and dry gullies. It is frequently attracted to flowers.

It is separated from the similar but slightly less widespread Elada checkerspot by the colour of the margin of the underside hindwing. It is black in the tiny and orange in the Elada.
