Hi Phillip,

I just google-mapped your location and you are not far from the Western Massachusetts border. Based on that information I am truly unable to place species because of this specimen's unusually dark green coloration. At first I thought that perhaps this was Tibicen lyricen but now I'm not so sure because that species in teneral form is more "pink" than green. Hopefully someone will be able to identify this specimen.

An image of the fully hardened adult would help greatly if you have one.

Thank you very much for sharing your image with us.
