Amongst young Aussie kids the legendary White Knight is believed to exist but it is really just a black prince. When cicadas such as double drummers and black princes first emerge they appear white and gradually they develop their distinctive pigmentation. This is the before and after shots of the same cicada.

Some Neotibicen tibicen tibicen photos from 2005 taken by me. At the time these photos were taken this cicada was dead. Neotibicen tibicen tibicen are popularly called Morning or Swamp cicadas.

This one looks like a Neotibicen tibicen tibicen:
