Problem is your dash is a fancy unicode-y en dash, not just a simple "-" character so my na´ve attempt's not matching. I had to do some monkeying with Encode cutting and pasting your sample (which I don't think you'd need for Mojo when you're actually fetching your real results) but then I was able to get this to match.

## I set $_ to your sample string cut-n-pasted, then ran it through +decode DB<33> $_ = Encode::decode( q{UTF-8}, $_ ) ## Afterwards this worked (U+2013 is EN DASH); if you're not interes +ted in what ## the separator was you can of course change that bit to non-captur +ing DB<38> x m{ ^ (\d+) \. \s+ (.*?) \s+(-|\N{EN DASH}|\N{EM DASH})\s+ ( +.*?) $}x 0 123 1 'The Quick brown fox' 2 '\x{2013}' 3 'jumped over'
