The Comma is distributed throughout most of England and Wales and parts of south-east Scotland. It gets its name from the white marking on the underwing which looks a bit like a comma. (See photo 2.)
It can be seen any time between March and October with two peaks in April and from July to September.
|It is associated with nettles during the summer and hibernates in woodland over winter.
