Observation notes: I observed this mating pair of Euchloe creusa in flight and perching on various low plants - conditions were sunny to partly cloudy. The exact location was the southeastern side of Coffee Dome, on the Kougarok Road at mile marker 72, north of Nome, Alaska. Elevation was 620-650 feet. I am including photos of the butterflies as well as 3 photos of surrounding habitat and plants.
