Clearwing moth with scaled wings? - Zenodoxus canescens

Clearwing moth with scaled wings? - Zenodoxus canescens
Española, Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, USA
November 9, 2013
Size: 5 mm wingspan?
Is this my old friend Zenodoxus canescens, or something similar with less patterning on the abdomen?

There must have been six or eight flying around this afternoon in an area of dead leaves and short weeds, staying within a few centimeters of the ground, occasionally landing on perches like this one at the same height where they were flying.

Sorry, no other angles. I may try again tomorrow, maybe.
