More Cicadas from Wallingford, CT


A dead cicada was found this morning on work property. It appears that insects have been eating it as the head is missing. In addition, after handling, a wing became detached.

Hey Larry,

This is a specimen of a female T. lyricen. The black pronotal collar and large black stripe on the underside of the abdomen are key features in identifying this species.

Thanks Gerry.

I remember seeing it in your collection. I knew it was female (at least I got something right).

My dachshund caught a possible cicada tonight in Madison, CT. I live in TX and have seen them there, but never before in CT.

Hi Christine,

Thanks for the comment. Actually, Connecticut has several species of cicadas. In fact you probably hear them right now when the sun is out Madison, Ct. and just don't realize. it.

While Connecticut probably doesn't have as many species as Texas, they are there.
