Yucca moth on Yucca glauca flower pistil

Yucca moth on Yucca glauca flower pistil
Rabbit Mountain Open Space, Boulder County, Colorado, USA
May 16, 2012
This moth is on a Yucca glauca flower at Rabbit Mountain Open Space on the plains. Elevation ~5500'. It greatly resembles Prodoxus species. I will post another individual that has better antennae. Any help is much appreciated.
12/8/2016 I did not mention that this moth is standing on the pistil of a yucca flower.
