[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Comma (Polygonia c-album) is a species of butterfly, common in the United Kingdom and with a distribution across Europe and temperate Asia to Japan and south to Morocco. Similar species are found in the United States and Canada. It has a white marking on its underwings resembling a comma. The wings have a distinctive ragged edge, apparently a cryptic form as the butterfly resembles a fallen leaf. The caterpillars are also cryptic, resembling a bird dropping.

Latin name: Polygonia c-album

Size: Has a wingspan of around 45mms.

Months seen: April through to November.

Habitat: Woodlands and gardens.
