Wikipedia Abstract

Apamea sordens, the rustic shoulder-knot or bordered apamea, is a moth of the family Noctuidae. It is distributed throughout Europe, East across the Palearctic to Central Asia and to China and Japan. It also occurs in North America (Labrador to Virginia, west across Canada, south to Minnesota).This moth has a wingspan of 36 to 42 mm. The forewings are brown with mostly indistinct markings except for the narrow black mark at the base of the wing which gives the species its common name.
