Pretty Brazilian Cicada: the Carineta diardi

Filed under: Brazil,Carineta — Dan @ 4:54 pm

Pia Öberg from Sweden took this cicada photo back in 2004 at Hotel do Ypê in Itatiaia NP in Brazil. Thanks to Roy Troutman and cicada expert Allen Sanborn we were able to ID this pretty cicada as a Carineta diardi (Guérin-Méneville, 1829).
