Gray Comma (LEP129) Polygonia comma


     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.
