Cicada Nymph Found at St. Patrick Cemetery

T. canicularis nymph

9:30 pm - What a difference a day makes. Last night around this time, I found tons of T. canicularis Cicadas in various stages of molting all over St. Patrick Cemetery.

This evening is a little cool but it's still humid. I did a wide survey of the cemetery, including my favorite spots. I found absolutely no signs of Cicadas except some exuvia on some pine trees. This is truly unusual. The night wasn't a total waste however. I did find one nymph crawling along the ground at the base of a pine tree. This is the first time I've actually saw one on the ground.

I have been hoping to discover a nymph emerging from the ground but so far this is as close as I have gotten.

I took it home and put it in the terrarium with the other Cicadas that I got the night before. This nymph ended up being a male.
