looks like
Peridroma saucia - Variegated Cutworm - Hodges#10915
"forewing ground color variably tan, light brown, dark brown, or reddish-brown; costa - from base to two-thirds its length - has 7 short black marks, the first 4 and last 2 are in pairs (a distinctive feature)" ... even with the dark shading of your specimen, the marks are visible.

another dark individual

the coloration of this species is quite variable, though.

There we go!
Now I'm sold. Thanks!
