Hey Jake,

Very cool photos of these amazing tiny cicadas. I suspect that these cicadas are so over-looked that their range may be more extensive than what it is now. In fact, I even think there is a small possibility these may be in New England somewhere. They are found in Virginia after all. Also I believe that there are two color morphs. Red and Green. Yours look red.
