Heliothis peltigera

The Bordered Straw (Heliothis peltigera) is a species of moth of the family Noctuidae. It is found in Southern Europe and the Near East, but can be found further North too, because it is a migratory species. It is also present in most of Africa and in Asia, ranging to China and Laos.
