Saw four today all hill-topping on Rocky Outcrop. This incredibly-fresh one sitting on it's host: Erigonum latifolium ( Coast Buckwheat ) The teal blue/green color at the base thorax of each wing is only present for it's first few days of flight - it wears off and becomes uniformly green.
This site is part of a project I created awhile back:
