Gina's cicada

We have three new galleries:

NEW! Gina Scarborough’s Florida Cicada. 18 great pictures of a pink cicada. We need help identifying this cicada, so let us know if you have a clue what it is.

NEW! Giant pictures of Bill Lesar’s Tibicen dorsatus. You’ve seen this cicada in an earlier post — now you can see huge versions of Bill’s photographs.

NEW! Andrea’s 2005 Cicada Nymph Exoskeleton Gallery. Three big pictures of discarded exoskeletons.

    Just because it has a big head in proportion to the rest of its body, it might be Tibicen davisi

    Its kind of hard at the teneral stage to ID a cicada before it is fully hardened. Pink wing veins
    I have found to be common in some species of Cicadas while molting. However, this color receeds
    as the cicada hardens and is only temporary. While I am unfamiliar with some species of Florida
    Cicadas I can at least offer that this specimen is a female.

    A good place to start for ID purposes would be here:
