Brood XIX Cicadas in Athens, GA

So far only a few males calling sporadically -- nothing like the constant hum neighboring counties are reporting.

Hi Nancy,

Thanks for the photo. That sure is one of the smaller of the three species known to be in your area. I am going to go out on a limb and say that that specimen is probably M. tredcassini. You can differentiate between M. tredecassini and M. tredecula by the underside of the abdomen.

M. tredecassini generally has all black sternites while M. tredecula will exhibit some orange on their sternites. Thanks for the cool photo.
