Peaslee WMA
Cumberland County, NJ

Did a tour looking for anything flying.

Most interesting was the photo provided of a Comma. At first I thought this may have been a Gray Comma, given the very dark pattern and slight frosty edging, but the lack of long bars under the ventral forewing and lack of heavy striation had me confused. I then saw a photo on the North Jersey Butterflies group of a "plain form" Eastern Comma, and this fit my individual best. I can't recall seeing a "plain form" before and wonder if others have? I'm curious if this is an unusual form, or just to me?

[Intriguing find! Have any other observers seen this form in South Jersey? jc]

  • Anglewing sp. 1
