Hi Jeff,

Thanks for the cool photo of a Tibicen canicularis cicada. This species is pretty wide spread and can be found throughout New England. The male's calling song I liken to sounding like a buzz-saw on helium. Other species found in your area are Okanagana rimosa and Okanagana canadensis and to a lesser extent, Tibicen lyricen.

Thanks for sharing this cool photo and adding to our distribution database of sightings.
