In a previous paper, arXiv:1206.5498, we introduced a new homological\r\ninvariant $\\e$ for the faithful action of a finite group G on an algebraic\r\ncurve.\r\n We show here that the moduli space of curves admitting a faithful action of a\r\nfinite group G with a fixed homological invariant $\\e$, if the genus g\' of the\r\nquotient curve is sufficiently large, is irreducible (and non empty iff the\r\nclass satisfies the condition which we define as \'admissibility\'). In the\r\nunramified case, a similar result had been proven by Dunfield and Thurston\r\nusing the classical invariant in the second homology group of G, H_2(G, \\ZZ).\r\n We achieve our result showing that the stable classes are in bijection with\r\nthe set of admissible classes $\\e$.
