The Comma (Polygonia c-album) is a species of butterfly belonging to the family Nymphalidae. The species survives the winter in the adult stage, and adults are of two forms. The form that overwinters before reproducing has dark undersides of the wings, resembling a dead leaf, a perfect camouflage throughout the winter. The majority of the offspring have this dark form.
