Coordinator notes: This is actually not the Chryxus Arctic but the Calais Arctic (subspecies altacordillera). BAMONA does not have this loaded as a species in the system. I think I explained about this to you a couple of years ago from photos you sent from Gunnison County when you were staying in Gunnison/Almont/Crested Butte area? Mike
