Need to Move files of different dates

Hi,

Currently I'm moving the files based on date like below.

"mv *20150901* backup_folder" - Limitation: can move only 1 day files to backup folder.

I want to move the files of different dates like 20150901,02, 03, 04.....

Is there any single command to do it.

Thanks in advance!!

Please use code tags as required by forum rules!

Wouldn't mv *20150901* *20150902* *20150903* backup_folder work?

Thanks for the update.

If we want to move for 30 or 40 days.. then I believe this wont work.

Is there any other to do it for more number of days.
