Male lyric cicada morphology

Below are a set of thumbnails to bigger images of the the cicadas that I collected on the 21st during the night visit to Fairview Cemetery. These photos were taken two days after their teneral stage to ensure they are the true colors.

The Tibicen lyricen specimens have also been added to the Morphologies in Tibicen Cicadas page. You can compare these two new specimens to the previous specimens collected. I am currently working on a morphologies page for Tibicen canicularis as well which will hopefully be up in a week or two. However, even by comparing the below images of the two that I have (last two thumbnails on the right), you can see that they are very different from each other even though they are the same species and are both male.
