    Yucca moths are most well known for their obligate pollination mutualism with yuccas, where pollinator moths provide yuccas with pollen and, in exchange, the moth larvae feed on a subset of the developing yucca seeds. The pollinators, however, comprise only two of the three genera of yucca by: Blog. 24 April How to make a sales pitch on video; 22 April Strengthening a school community with Prezi Video; 22 April Engage your students during remote learning with .

    Yucca moth, (genus Tegeticula), any of four species of insects of the Prodoxidae family of moths (order Lepidoptera). The adults are small, diurnal, and have tiny spines covering their wings. Each of the four species is adapted to a particular species of yucca. The moths emerge when the yucca. Jerry A.

Direct evidence for this is limited to T. maculata on Y. whipplei'.'6. Reproductive biology of Yucca The success of the mutualism between prodoxine moths and a yucca population is determined by several interrelated factors, including: (1) the synchrony of flowering and moth emergence; (2) the consistency of flowering abundance and moth numbers from year to year; (3) the percentage of flowers pollinated Cited by: Biological Interrelationships of Moths and Yucca Schottii (University of California Publications in Entomology) Paperback – December 1, by Jerry A.

[Jerry A Powell; Richard A Mackie]. yucca moths (Prodoxidae) is a classic story of mutualistic re- lationships. Many floras and general treatments of evolution, plant- animal interactions or insect biology include a statement summarizing the yucca moth story. Often such accounts are repeated virtually un- changed from Riley’: yucca polli.

Maculation often is white with various darker markings, or more colorful and iridescent. Adults are diurnal. Larvae are seed, flower stalk, or stem borers; rarely gall makers.

Host plants are various yucca plants (Agavaceae) for the well-known yucca pollinators of North America, while other species (Lamproniinae) are on hardwood trees and bushes.

Yucca moths, family Prodoxidae, total 65 species, mostly western Nearctic, but now also including some genera (Lamproniinae) from other regions that previously were placed in Incurvariidae.

The family is in the superfamily Incurvarioidea, in the section Incurvariina, of division Monotrysia, infraorder Heteroneura. Hesperoyucca whipplei is the sole member of its genus, which together with the small, non-moth-pollinated genus Hesperaloe, constitutes the sister group of the genus Yucca (Bogler et al., ).Cited by: 8.

Unlike the chaparral yucca (Y. whipplei), it produces a compact flower cluster, a distinct basal trunk on old specimens, and leaves with conspicuous marginal fibers. Although its range overlaps that of Y. whipplei, it requires a different species of yucca moth (Tegeticula yuccasella).

As nocturnal insects commonly rely on odor cues for mate and host location, yucca moths are predicted to use olfaction to find flowering yuccas. Here we report on the first step in a program to elucidate the role of floral odors in the yucca–yucca‐moth mutualism, using the capsular‐fruited Yucca filamentosa as Cited by:   DOUGLAS W.

The Yucca moths and the yucca plant help eachother out because only the yucca moth can polinate the yucca plant. The female yuccas fined a yucca plant and scrape off some pollin and then she will find another yucca plant and open it up and lay her eggs, and the pollin she takes can only be smelt by other yucca moths witch will tell them to.
