Earlier, on this blog, I posted this photo and identified it as a grey comma.
I had sent it to the web site BUTTERFLIES and MOTHS of NORTH AMERICA for identification last September.

Well, today, I got an e mail from them identifying my butterfly.

It's not a grey comma, but a Question Mark.  (Who gave butterflies their common names anyway?)

I was close, still in the punctuation family.    a nice website for identifications.
