Comma * Robert-le-Diable by GiMi53 ()
Picture taken at the Marais d’Harchies on March 28th.
The Comma (Polygonia c-album) is a species of butterfly that ranges across Europe and temperate Asia to Japan and south to Morocco. Similar species are found in the United States and Canada.
The Comma has a white marking on its underwings resembling a comma. The wings have a distinctive ragged edge, apparently a cryptic form as the butterfly resembles a fallen leaf.
The species survives the winter in the adult stage.
Le Robert-le-Diable (Polygonia c-album) est un papillon diurne de la famille des Nymphalidae, sous-famille des Nymphalinae, du genre Nymphalis et du sous-genre Polygonia. Le Robert-le-Diable vole dès les premiers jours ensoleillés de février à fin novembre.
