This looks like either Iridopsis sancta or Iridopsis obliquaria. Both are relatively common in Arizona with I. sancta reported from mid-February to July and I. obliquaria almost all year. Judging from the flight periods, I. obliquaria should be the one on flight. However, I would not worry about one month, especially in Arizona. With only one record of I. sancta on, and one pinned specimen on Moth Photographers Group (http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.ed...), I am not sure I am willing to eliminate I. sancta as a possibility.
