|This Green Comma was seen at near sea level, along the Turnagain Arm Trail south of Anchorage, on August 1, 2003. It was flying alone, and nectaring on a native plant called fireweed, Epilobium angustifolium. It was found in a sloped meadow next to a mixed forest, with a stream. This is a long-lived species that overwinters as an adult and breeds early in the spring. The caterpillars live on willows, aspen, birches, etc. It ranges across most of northern USA and Canada, and down the Rocky Mountains to Arizona.|
