Filed under: Annual,Tibicen — Tags: — Dan @ 8:00 am

Here’s a Tibicen auletes found in Winston-Salem, North Carolina by my friend Erin Dickinson. The T. auletes is also known as Northern Dusk Singing cicada. It can be found in most Southern states, IL, IN, MI, OH, MD, DE, NJ and CT.

The Tibicen auletes is the largest species of the Tibicen cicadas (largest in terms of physical size). Visit Insect Singers to hear its song.

    I live in Central Michigan(Alma)and I was camping 15miles south of here this Labor Day weekend and one these landed on my matt in front of my trailer. I was pretty sure it was a Cicada and from all the singing that went on out there I’m sure there were many more. Don’t recall ever seeing any in this area before.
