Scientific name: Polygonia interrogationis (Fabricius)
(Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae)

Facts: The question mark has a pair of silver spots on the lower surface of the hind wing. This is quite conspicuous against the leaf brown pattern of the hind wing. Its name is derived from the similarity of these silver spots to the form of a question mark. There are several closely related species to the question mark and care must be taken in their identification.
