Cicada Sighting - Belchertown, MA

Hiya- I found this one in my yard... its wings are damaged somehow. Not sure if this is a rare one or even remotely interesting, but maybe you'll find it interesting... I dunno.

Hi Tom,

Your specimen is a male T. lyricen cicada. What is interesting about your specimen is that it is all brown (except for the wing veins) usually on the body of the cicada there are greens that are mixed in. Very unusual morph.

Did you happen across this specimen with damaged wings or did you take it too early when it was molting.
