Zephyr Comma
Polygonia zephyrus

Observation date: August 22, 2015
Submitted by: wallap74
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: mikefisher
Verified date: January 12, 2018
Coordinator notes: Yes, the Hoary Comma. Some place Polygonia gracilis and zephyrus as the same species, not separate. I ascribe to that combination. This one looks yet like the summer brood with a browner underside. The ones in fall are often very silver. Mike
