“Angle Shades is a migratory moth of the family Noctuidae, distributed throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

The common name is derived from the characteristic markings on the forewings: the base colour is buffish, brown towards the termen, and is marked with a bold V-shaped pink-and-green marking. Despite this bright colouring, the angular markings provide excellent disruptive patterning camouflage.”
