Observation notes: Warm and calm. Landed in damp/mud area by creek. Only one I saw during the week I was there.

Coordinator notes: Nope, not an Ivallda Arctic. How about a Great Arctic? These records lack a specific locality so will not be useful to those scientists wanting data in a specific way. Your comments indicate that is your intent, private property. Oeneis nevadensis is known from that region-Ken Davenport
