When found in the wild & alive its wings are green and black, but the green turns yellow after death.

This is a photo of one of my displays at home. Some of the specimens aren’t in the best shape, but it is good enough to distinguish the species.
Angamiana floridula, Becquartina electa, Gaeana cheni, Gaeana festiva, Platypleura mira, Tacua speciosa, Tosena albata, Tosena melanoptera, Tosena paviei, and Trengganua sibylla are featured in the image.
Update: the name of this cicada is actually Trengganua sibylla (confirming after consulting Allen Sanborn’s giant cicada book. You’ll find people also refer to this cicada as Tosena sybilla.
