Gray Comma, Polygonia comma  <LEP129>


     Commas and Question Marks are really anglewings.  The names refer to tiny silver marks on the underside of the hindwing.  Otherwise the underside is grayish brown with darker striations and a frosty forewing tip.  The upperside is reddish tawny, brown spotted and bordered, with orange dots in the broad hindwing border.  Commas fly away quickly, but usually return to one spot.
