The Comma is a species of butterfly belonging to the family Nymphalidae. Its irregular wing edges are characteristic of the "Polygonia" genus, which is why they are commonly called anglewings. It is found in northern Africa and across Europe from Portugal through Asia as far as Japan. Its dorsal wings are colourful but its underside has a pattern that camouflages it when its wings are held together.
