How The Hell….

Date: Saturday, Oct/19/2002

Message: Hi people,
i had always been awed by cicadas and i know the usual sounds they make, like a song, repeating over and over again. Well i never had been close up to a cicada before and one just appeared outside my window and it ‘singing’ its cicada song, and damn it was really loud close up. Well, i assume that cicadas have 2 pairs of wongs because i did not see its outer bugger wings move when it ‘sang’. And i also noticed that it moved it’s butt up or down every change of the note, i suppose to change the friction of the inner wings rubbing against it’s ‘butt’. I am not so sure about this but please e-mail me at kensheex [AT] to inform me more about how they do that sound. — Mah Chen Zhong, Singapore

I enjoy the sound of cicadas they remind me of the fun times I had at my grand mother’s house in Lousiana

NZ Cicadas

Date: Wednesday, Oct/2/2002

Message: Well Owen unfortunately I missed my first one, would have been a new species for me to.
I am still not sure what species of Kikihia it was but I’m sure I’ll catch a few of his friends.
Good to hear that your season is going well Lindsay, by the way I think everyone should check out your website, it is amazing, hopefully I will send the cicadas to David next week, there could be a couple in there for you to, especially Notopsalta sericea, but there will be more later for you anyway.I hope you guys get some rain soon to end that drought your having, rain doesnt seem to be a problem here in Auckland, its my first year here and I dont think I have seen so much rain.
Catchya later — Kees, New Zealand
