Cicadas and insect classes

Date: Wednesday, Oct/22/2003

Message: I have not done any serious collecting this summer, but last weekend I taught the section on Insects for the Master Naturalists in Amarillo. I included 40 species of Cicadas when I talked about diversity in insects. Tibicen superba the Superb Cicada seemed out in abundance this summer in Borger, as every tree had two or three in it. Tibicen dorsata – the Grand Western Cicada was also out, but in smaller numbers.I need cicada specimens from the West. Anyone willing to trade? johnne [AT] — Wes Phillips, Fritch, Texas USA
