Dedicated to cicadas, the most amazing insects in the world.
Anyone want to try to guess at the species of this Tibicen? The photo was taken by Don in Michigan. My guess is T. davisi, but I’m almost just as sure that I’m wrong.
Then the truth this species of Tibicen never I have seen it by Spain, in any case precious it is even just emerged, if you pay attention to the eyes are of greenish and nonblack color as the Tibicen lyricen, to have if we were able to guess to that species belongs.
Tibicen lyricen in the teneral stage has black eyes and the pronotal collar is almost always pink.
I think it is a Tibicen lycerin.
I apologize for my horrendous mis-spellings.
Tenerals are tough without known it’s size. I see two possibilities
1). T. canicularis which is the Northern Dog Day Cicada, T. davisi is more southern in its
2). T. linnei which I believe is in Michigan. The reason it may be this species are the central
bends on the costal margines of the forewings.
Just my two cents.
