Sordid Dart
Euxoa adumbrata

sordid dart moth
I believe this is the Sordid Dart Moth, although I haven't had confirmation of that yet. It seems
 to be the same in wing pattern to the one I found on  No one seems to know what the
larvae of this moth eat or what plants they prefer.  They probably eat anything they can get their
grubbies on, like most cutworm moths. I found this one on Antelope Island and it is in the prime
of its existence--no real worn spots as yet.  This moth was on Antelope Island trapped
inside a building.  © Carol Davis, 5-31-2009
