tulip tree silk moth?

This is definitely a moth in the genus Callosamia, but we are unsure if it is a female Promethia Moth, Callosamia promethea, or a female Tulip Tree Silkmoth, Callosamia angulifera. Our inclination is that it is a Promethia Moth, but we want to try to contact a true expert, Bill Oehlke.
