Reports of Cicadas Emerging in the US

Below is a list of first reports that have been posted to Massachusetts Cicadas' Entomology-Cicadidae group from around the United State:

June 12, Wake Co. N. Carolina
Tibicen tibicen, Tibicen robinsonianus, Tibicen lyricen, Neocicada heiroglyphica

Central Mississippi
Neocicada heiroglyphica - May 24
Tibicen tibicen - June 1
Tibicen pruinosus - June 9

Washington Co. Arkansas
Tibicen robinsonianus - June 6

Neocicada heiroglyphica - June 1

Ft. Collins Co,
Platypedia putnami - May 21

Of course, here in the Northeast the only cicada to report is Okanagana rimosus one of the first species to emerge here. It usually appears around the end of May and disappears around the end of the first week of July, making room for our two most commong Tibicen species, Tibicen lyricen and Tibicen canicularis.

We do have two other "less common species" Tibicen auletes (on Martha's Vineyard) and Tibicen tibicen (sporadic locations in Massachusetts but well established populations on Nantucket Island).
