Chryxus Arctic Butterfly (Oeneis chryxus): These mid to large sized butterflies can be found in mountain meadows, grasslands, and openings in coniferous forests. Like many butterflies, they tend to blend into their surroundings if you view the underside of their wings. On the top, they are a dark orange, with black “shoulders” and wing tips.
