Update: the name of this cicada is actually Trengganua sibylla (confirming after consulting Allen Sanborn’s giant cicada book. You’ll find people also refer to this cicada as Tosena sybilla.

A monograph of oriental cicadidae (1892) by Willian Lucas

Filed under: Cicada Anatomy,Photos & Illustrations — Dan @ 3:13 am

I recently found a book called A monograph of oriental cicadidae in the Internet Archive. The A monograph of oriental cicadidae was authored by William Lucas Distant, and published in 1892 — that’s 116 years ago! The book contains plenty of text and illustrations, some of which I’ll include below:
