Status of the yucca moth (Tegeticula yuccasella) in Alberta

Description

This wildlife status report looks at the yucca moth. The yucca moth is distributed throughout the United States and just reaches Canada in the Milk River region. The species currently has no status designations in Canada; although its host plant, the soapweed, has been designated as Threatened. This report is intended to summarize existing information on the yucca moth and to assist in the management of the moth, its mutualist host and their habitat in Alberta. It is part of the Alberta Wildlife Status Report series, which provides comprehensive summaries of selected wildlife species intended to be useful to those managing populations of species and their habitats, and to help identify species that may be formally designated as endangered or threatened.
