Uhler's Arctic
Oeneis uhleri

Observation date: July 20, 2021
Submitted by: twofried
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Not as white below as the Uhler's was. And I think I see the 'bird's beak'.
Status: Resident
Verified by: stevecary
Verified date: July 24, 2021
Coordinator notes: your earlier uhleri was remarkably pale. this is more typical. In comparison, Chryxus has a well-defined median band crossing the ventral hindwing, and the 'bird's beak' is more prominent.
