Uhler's Arctic
Oeneis uhleri

Observation date: August 12, 2019
Submitted by: ncrosbyrd
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: mikefisher
Verified date: December 23, 2019
Coordinator notes: Certainly Uhler's Arctic; the Melissa Arctic is grayer and dark on the underside of the hindwings. Above timberline only...look for melissa around rock piles on and along ridge tops where trails often go. You should be able to find it on Cottonwood Pass when you cross it some time in the future, assuming you'll be back to Colorado sometime. Mike
