Photos of Brood XXII in Ohio and Kentucky by Roy Troutman.

Brood XXII is a brood of 13-year Magicicada. It emerges in a small area of Ohio & Kentucky, as well as Louisiana and Mississippi. It last emerged in 2014, and will emerge again in 2027.

Roy traveled around Ohio and Kentucky mapping locations were Magicicada were present. The result is the paper:
Kritsky, Gene & Troutman, Roy. (2014). The 2014 emergence of a previously unrecognized 13-year brood of periodical cicadas in southwestern Ohio and northern Kentucky.

The photos are BIG. Click/tap the thumbnails below for larger versions.
