Cicada Sighting in Clinton, MA


Attached are the pictures of the Cicada that I caught tonight. The one that I got from Laura's sister I couldn't get out of the net cage so I will have to try to get him later. I left all the pictures full size to make identifying easier.

I just came in and saw no new Cicadas out there. I am going to go back out in about a half hour or so.

Definitely a male T. canicularis my friend. He is in a state known as a "teneral" newly molted.

You will notice as he ages that he will develop white pruinosity (wax) on his underside. That is, his underside will turn totally white.

Very cool.
