Dedicated to cicadas, the most amazing insects in the world.
Here’s a nice photo of a Tibicen cicada infected with a fungi. Yuck! Thanks to Matt for the photo.
I’m interested in where and when you found the fungal infected Tibicen pictured above. What do you know about this fungual? Was it identified? Any info you have is greatly accepted as NEAT. Thanks.
Hi Dan and Matt –
I would be interested to know where that infected Tibicen came from and which species it is. Although for all I know it may not be uncommon, I have not seen a fungus-infected Tibicen before and we’re interested in learning about how the different fungal species affect their “hosts”.
