Green Comma Butterfly

 The Green Comma is best identified on the underside where there are  many green marks on the underwing.
In addition to the scalloped  edges typical anglewings, there is also a white mark on the underside of the hind wing.
 Sometimes, the white mark known as the comma has a soft, upward curve and on other times it actually looks angular and has clubs on the ends. I've been unable to find a satisfying explanation for this.
 This species is plentiful and is often seen in large numbers at the Blackhead bus shelter trail.
The last few images are of the female Green Comma.
