Polygonia c album

Open the photo gallery

The underside of the wings of this butterfly are dull brown with a small white "C" shaped marking resembling a comma (hence the common name). The wings have a distinctive ragged edge, apparently a cryptic form as the butterfly resembles a fallen leaf. These butterflies hibernate, so they could be seen year round, but the active flying period extends from April to November, depending on location
