Ceratocampinae is a subfamily of moths in the saturniidae family dubbed the royal moths! the rosy maple moth and imperial moth are both in this family ehe
i wanted the saturniidae url but that was taken. and so was zygaenidae, nolidae, sphingidae, i had to start thinking if i even wanted the url rip.
anyways, sparsilelammergeier was an url i had when i just mostly felt alone (sparsile means a star not belonging to any star group, lammergeier bc bone eating birds are cool), and ive been starting to feel better about things, and the url was starting to not fit, so i figured, why not change? for a bit at least ehe. i have a feeling im going to stick with this url, though, aha.
