ID please, which Uhler's Arctic  under Brushfooted Butterfly, is this?   - Oeneis uhleri

ID please, which Uhler's Arctic under Brushfooted Butterfly, is this? - Oeneis uhleri
2 km S of Fairy Hill Marsh, Saskatchewan, Canada
June 9, 2014
I've never seen one of these in Southern Saskatchewan before. Should this go to Uhler's Arctic (Oeneis uhleri), or can someone tell me if it's a Oeneis uhleri varuna, or Oeneis uhleri uhleri? To me, it's browner than the uhleri uhleri, it looks like the uhleri varuna. I couldn't get any closer to this butterfly for more photos. Thank you.
EDIT added May 19, 2016: I did find another (at this same location): see here

Thanks, Kyhl. For ID purposes: will more people look at this if it's in Brushfooted than if it were in Butterflies? (I was kind of hoping more people would see it in butterflies and move it to an Uhler's Arctic ID rather than have it moved to Brushfooted and less people look at it to move it along) ??

 
It's not all about you or any individual editor
What is most efficient globally for the guide is important too

 
clarify
Hi, John; thanks, what you say makes sense, but I don't think I understand how your point applies to my comment. What I'm thinking (or trying to say) in my comment to Kyhl is: "For ID purposes, where should it sit for the best chance that it will correctly ID'd which will benefit the guide and best globally?" Sorry if it sounded like it was about me or an editor, I'm just trying to put it where it has the best chance to be ID'd correctly.
