One fly found, after a few hours searching along the Middle fork american river, at type locality. This individual found under a massive root overhang, hanging from a spiderweb as the paper indicates is common. Precarious to get a shot, managed a few before it spooked and took off.

A truly curious plant, growing on sheer cliffs above Thomes creek. Chinquapin metabasalt rock ridge. A very woody and huge plant, with a tendency to grow only on the north-facing cliffs or ledges - only one plant made it onto the south facing side of this ridge. Pressed some leaves, but plan to return when it is in bloom for a larger collection.

A few photos of the ridge with some plants on the cliffs visible from the other side of the canyon included. Shows the precipitous habitat it grows on.

I could be missing something obvious, which would save me a trip back ;). Possible it is not a buckwheat at all, but I'm drawing blanks for what else.

This Moth had one of its legs "stuck" in a crease of a long narrow green leaf on the roadside; eventually it got loose and flew away, but lost the one leg in the process. Along Mormon-Emigrant Road, approximately midway between Leek Spring Ecological Area and Silver Fork Road (North to Kyburz and Highway 50). Elevation about 7,250 feet.

Exciting! Instantly recognizable as the new genus & species first photographed by @chloe_and_trevor & identified as that by C.R. Bartlett: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/107311379

Some notes:
1) Collected four specimens, two in 90% alcohol. Will deposit them in a collection (e.g., UC Riverside or could send them to UDelaware if there is interest)
2) Likely host-specific on Bebbia juncea. I consistently found them on Bebbia, but not on any other plants in the area. Should make collecting these much easier...
3) The darkness of the wing band seems quite variable
4) Not sure the status of this, e.g., if a description effort is already underway. But would be great to get this described (and perhaps also to be involved)

So, I was more than delighted to have been able to spend a good 15 minutes watching this one at close range as it repeatedly carried mouthfuls of dry grass and green conifer twigs to its burrow under the snow.
