hehe
I did edit it, but I didn't think about the fact that, since I left the subject line blank, it was filled in with the first bit of my comment. I changed the part of the comment I wanted, but didn't change the subject, so it said two different things :-P

Tulip tree
Male Callosamia angulifera. Check this out to see how I know.

Edit. I accidentally wrote the wrong species the first time, so I hope you didn't read this comment right away :).

Also the brownish coloration of the wings. C. promethea males are more blackish, according to the guide.
