Neocicada in Fort Meyers, FL

Neocicada heiroglyphica(Kato 1932) var.johannis is the species I've been tracking for several years thats most prevelant in my area. This year the earliest I heard a male call was on 04/05/12, this weekend I traveled to various favorate locations to check on the progress of the species and they were everywhere calling from morning to dusk. The numbers are growing but will increase through the summer till september when they die out. Submitted is a photo taken a few years back to show the species.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the very cool photos. It is amazing that that for such a small insect as these tiny Neocicadas, that they can make such a loud noise.

It is also my understanding that there are two cycles of emergences for these guys. One in early March/April and then another one in July/August. Out of all the cicadas in Florida, these seem to be around for the longest time.

Thanks for sharing.
