Description

Found in grass field at River Styx park. I was unable to get a picture of the underside of the wings. I believe it is a Eastern Comma because it lacks the fourth spot (in the second row on the forewing) that is shown for the Question Mark. Also the hindwing tail is short suggesting it is a Comma.
