Moth or butterfly
http://www.gardenswithwings.com/facts-in...This is a site that shows the difference between a Question Mark and an Eastern Comma butterfly. Thought it might help.
I compared several photos from both,and believe because if the white marking this is a Comma. Thoughts?
Now, Karen we have to debate...I will check again, but you might be correct with the Comma.Do you know about the little point in Question Mark and the distance to the curved line?http://bugguide.net/node/view/264950/bgp...http://bugguide.net/node/view/667916/bgi...Space and no space between the white markings?What do you think?
Nymphalidae, Nymphalinae, Nymphalini, Polygonia sp. and should be Polygonia interrogationis, the Question Mark. It is a butterfly, sometimes very variable in colors and markings.Look at the clubbed antennae, moths usually have straight/filamentous or featherlike antennae.http://bugguide.net/node/view/230475/bgp...http://bugguide.net/node/view/134571/bgp...
Please verify as there are several similar, including the question mark
