The genus Mocis (s.l.) is currently under revision (Lalanne-Cassou and Silvain, to be published).
The differences in genitalia structure lead us to keep both genera Mocis and Remigia.
Larva on Poaceae (Digitaria, sugarcane, maize, rice).
Very common in Guadeloupe (lectotype of R. latipes) and Martinique.
St-Kitts, Antigua, Dominica, Grenada.
Throughout the Greater Antilles (Dominican Republic: type specimen of R. exscindens).
From the south of the United States (type specimen of R. indentata) to Argentina.
The sex pheromone produced by the female moths has been described (Descoins C., Lalanne-Cassou B., Malosse C. and Milat M.L., 1986, C.R. Acad. Sc. Paris, III, 302: 509-512). It consists of:
Mocis and related genera.
