On Monday (Memorial Day) I was lucky enough to find a lone Magicicada septendecim brood II straggler in Metuchen, NJ. This is a male, and he was about 1.5 inches or 3.8 centimeters long.

UPDATED! Now with high-rez versions.

Thanks to Elias for noticing the coloration behind the eye that IDs this as a decim.
