Coupled Electrons and Magnetic Flux reduce Effective Magnetic field
[Papic et al. Arxiv:0902.3233v1]
(for example, in the ν = 2/3 case the valley unpolarized state is favored over the valley polarized states for both n = 0 and n = 1, Apalkov et al.)
The close lattice matching would introduce a mass term into the Dirac Hamiltonian which would lift the valley degeneracy of the zero energy Landau level
