As FlyerX has mentioned, there is a bug in the export from Poseray to Moray. 
What you have to do before rendering to POV-Ray, is:
1) open the .inc file generated by Poseray
2) go to the last code block (Model assembly from meshes)
3) delete all text reading "uv_mapping". Example: 
"object{BeautifulWoman_hip_uv_mapping}" should now read: 
"object{BeautifulWoman_hip_}"
4) render in Moray

Just to be sure: As you do not mention exporting to UDO from Poseray, I 
wonder if you have followed that option? What I do is this:

1) make figure in Poser
2) export to .OBJ
3) import into Poseray using the Poser import option
4) export to Moray output
5) correct the .inc file
6) in Moray: import the UDO
7) finally render with POV-Ray 3.5


Hope this helps

Thomas

Yes, Thomas, that is exactly the procedure I have worked out. I had hoped that I
was doing something wrong, but if it is a bug that can be fixed, so much the
better.

Indeed, it is. And a new version of Moray of course, in due time...

I am glad to hear this. Just my two cents... I think Moray is an excellent
modeler... so good in fact that I prefer it to any other I have ever tried. My
favorite Moray features not found in other modelers include the
alt/ctrl/shift-click for panning, zooming, and selecting, ctrl-d for
duplicating an object complete with transformations, the ability to enter
numerical values for scaling, rotation, and translation, a highly intuitive
materials editor, and my favorite, a hands-on real time bezier editor!

Moray rules! Can I volunteer to beta-test the new version? If so, email me. I
used to beta-test both Moray and Povray a decade or more ago and I am sure I
could help a little. Let me know.

Well, I am really biased towards modellers like Wings3D and Silo2 these 
days, but Moray is unique in that it works so close with POV-Ray and offers 
indeed some unique features. My own favourite is the material editor 
although that does not implement entirely all POV-Ray possibilities. I 
certainly hope that at least will be corrected in the future version of 
Moray.

Chris Cason, in an earlier thread here, has asked for Moray programmers. I 
think that beta testing is not yet to be expected, but I am sure that when 
the time comes Chris will ask here for volunteers. I am certainly one too.

My understanding is that we will need to wait for quite a while :(

My understanding too. But we still have a toy to play with, haven't we?

I´m a Moray fan too. Only needs to support newer versions of Povray and I'm all
over it.
