    The Blue Moon Cicada that you have on your website was discovered in the “90’s” by a young boy named Degan in Bargo NSW. We rang up the new insects department and told them about the cicada and told us that we were the first ones to discover it and that they would come out and photograph it but then said that someone else had found the same thing that was closer for them and they would photograph that one but we were still allowed to name it first. We called it Slyblue.
