Notes on the Locusta; Septentrionalis americanae decem septima

Filed under: Magicicada — Dan @ 6:30 pm

I found another old cicada document, this one is called “Notes on the Locusta; Septentrionalis americanae decem septima“. It was published in 1839, and written by Nathaniel Potter. I haven’t read it yet, but it would be interesting to compare it to C.L. Marlatt’s Periodical Cicada bulletin (1898), and documentation written in the 1990s and 2000s.

Here’s a nice illustration from Potter’s book:
