The white colour of this moth blends perfectly into the white flowers of the yucca plant. This provides camouflage for it. Found in the North American deserts, the yucca moth is the only insect that can pollinate the yucca flowers. As it is pollinating the flower, the yucca moth also lays some eggs inside the ovary of the flower, which is the place where the seeds develop. The caterpillars feed on some of these seeds, leaving enough to grow into plants.
