Question Mark Butterfly - Polygonia interrogationis Butterfly - Polygonia interrogationis Butterfly - Polygonia interrogationis

Anglewing
I looks like an anglewing, but not one I have seen from my area. A "Polygonia" of some type. I am sure someone who knows butterflies from you area will step in and tell us.

 
Polygonia interrogationis - Question Mark
Shows the "extra" mark on the dorsal forewing area below the tip not present in P. comma. Ventral hindwing shows two-part "question mark."

 
Polygonia interrogationis ID
Thanks, Dick. Your ID agrees with two others. I'll move the photos to the Guide.
