This moth was found in Madera Canyon, Pima County, AZ in mid-April 2017. This was the only angle we could get of it. Is it possible to identify from this photo?

Tiger Moth

Dear Lois,
This looks like a Tiger Moth in the genus
Ctenucha to us.  There are several species found in Arizona, but this looks most like a member of the rubroscapus/multifaria species complex that is found along the Pacific coastal areas according to BugGuide.

Location: Pima County, Arizona
