Notes from Davis 1918, MISSISSIPPI CICADAS, WITH A KEY TO THE SPECIES OF THE SOUTHEASTERN UNITED:

Collar all green or nearly so, as well as the pronotum and mesonotum sayi var. australis (Davis).

sayi = Neotibicen tibicen.

The variety australis Davis, which is much greener colored, occurs not uncommonly in parts of Florida and Georgia, and should be found in Mississippi.

Link to Davis 1918.

Notes from Sanborn, Allen F., Phillips, Polly K. & Gilllis, Philip, 2008, The Cicadas of Florida (Hemiptera: Cicadoidea: Cicadidae), pp. 1-43 in Zootaxa 1916 on page 13.

The subspecies has a primarily green mesonotum, pronotum and pronotal collar with reduced black markings (fig. 140) instead of the black and fulvous areas on the pronotum and mesonotum (fig. 131)
