Marshes, Mires, and Shoreline Habitats
Montane Broadleaf Herbaceous Mires
Habitat Overview Mucky seeps and bottomlands, not necessarily associated with sphagnum mats or peatland soils. Often associated with forests, with its defining species tolerant of partial to deep shade.

Baltimore Checkerspot is associated with this habitat based on its main larval host plants, species of Chelone. However, those host plants themselves are less restricted to montane habitats and are placed in more general habitats associated with seepages or mucky soils.
