Only 1 adult of M. tredecim seen; at a Cash Points machine; possibly it could have been transported there via a vehicle; will look for more in the vicinity.

Hi Jeff,

Thanks very much for the cool series of photos of a typical M. tredecim 13 year Magicicada. These are easily distinguishable from the other two varieties by the large red patch located just anterior (behind) the big red eyes.

Do let us know if you find more.
