jbenny,

From a search of "moquim insect" at books.google.com

1st book result : Chambers's Edinburgh journal, conducted by W. Chambers. - Page 458

Everywhere in long grass lurks the 'moquim,' a little red insect, so small as to be almost imperceptible, but which fastens on the legs, causing the most intolerable itching.
