While leading a butterfly trip for SEABA in the Catalinas, we stopped along the Catalina Highway at a spot I know just below the 4000 foot sign. There was a lot of chewed Canyon Ragweed and I found some more AZ Tortoise Beetle larvae as well as a few adults (see photo above).

Thanks to Fred, Eric, and Margarethe for helping us all learn a new beetle!
