Question Mark Cat?

Question Mark Cat?
Wildwood Park; Radford, Virginia, USA

Found this on Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra). Is it Polygonia interrogationis? If not, what is it please?

Is this same cat as you posted a bit ago?
At least, this one more looks like Eastern Comma?

No, not the same cat!
However, I have found several of these cats on Elm trees in the same area. I haven't been able to get a firm ID for any of them. I'm fairly sure they are early instars. I'll keep taking pics and sending them along to Bug Guide!
