Plusines and bait

The moths of the Noctuid subfamily Plusiinae are avid flower visitors, but
I have never taken them at bait prior to this past weekend, when I took
single specimens
of two species of Syngrapha.  Has anyone else noted Plusiines at bait - and
is there anything special they are attracted to ?? My bait is a
beer-molasses-brown sugar mix with a bit of rum - works great for Catocala
and many other noctuids.
