A cause for lower belly overgrooming in cats can actually be impacted scent glands. I would suggest getting them checked and expressed if necessary and see if this helps. Of course - if it's been going on for a while it can become habitual but if it is an issue maybe expressing them will reduce to excessive overgrooming.
My cat had this issue and we ended up removing the scent glands because one had a damaged duct (scar tissue due to prolapses as a very sick kitten) and could not be expressed.
