schinia acutilinea
This one was very worn, but ghostly beautiful.  Carol Davis 9-15-2013

As I was driving around Promontory Point, Box Elder County,
Utah in 2011, I happened to glance over and see this little
walking around on  rabbitbrush.  It is a beautiful little thing.

The larvae of these moths feed on plants of the genus Artemisia,
which in our area includes sagebrush.
