Hi Cindy

Thanks for the photo and filling out the Massachusetts Cicadas online form. That species of cicada is known as Tibicen linnei. Connecticut has several different species of annual cicadas and each species generates a different sound. Where you are in New Canaan you can hear at least four different species.

Thanks very much for the photo. Could you possibly send a photo of the cicadas underbelly? You don't have to fill out the form again but can you send it as an email attachment to my email address?
