Worms in cabbages

Cabbage (red, white, Savoy)    None Given

Can anybody help me to ID this insect? It seems that is eating and making holes in the leaf.

It looks like a cross striped cabbageworm, Evergestis rimosalis. It is a caterpillar that really likes eating cabbage. You can brush them into a container of soapy water. Do you have many cabbages and is the problem extensive.

Reviewing the phytosanitary sistem of my country I found out that we don't have Evergestis rimosalis. So I am still confused by that and probably is another plague.
