Hope the pictures get to you. It was so exciting seeing a cicada for the first time in my life. I now live in Calif......don't know if any are here. Really enjoy your site. Thank you.

Hi Kathleen,
Thanks for the very cool photos. The green pronotal collar, extreme bend on the forward edge of the fore wings (a.k.a. the Costal Margin) and in this particular specimen the black face-mask across the head is indicative of T. linnei. Your specimen is also a female. Thanks for reporting your sighting.
