Do you know the names of the butterflies whose markings are shown below? Hint: They are the same as two common forms of punctuation.
Members of the brush-footed family, the Eastern Comma and Question Mark are also known as angle-wings because of their wing shape. When their wings are closed these masters of disguise look like dried leaves and remain well-hidden. Adults hibernate over winter.
The Eastern Comma has a comma punctuation shaped mark with a connected club. The Question Mark has two separate shapes similar to a question mark.
