Comma

Comma (Polygonia c-album): An early butterfly, it emerges after winter hibernation, using nettles as the larval food plant. Often found warming up on sunny gravestones, it is named after the white mark on the underside of the wing. The next generation from July to August also includes a summer form – P hutchinsoni – which is less deeply marked and more orange than the early hibernators.
