Abstract

A sugar cane pest in Mexico, Scolecocampa mochisa (Schaus) (new combination), was originally described in the monotypic genus Saccharophagos Schaus (1923), which is considered a new synonym of Scolecocampa Guenée (1852). The adult and larva are illustrated. The genitalia, egg, and pupa are described and illustrated. The closely related species, Scolecocampa stygialis (Smith), is a new combination.
