Cicada And Lantern Fly Display

I just received a Cicada And Lanternfly display from and I couldn’t be happier with it. The display is gorgeous: wood frame, glass on front and back, and 10 wonderful cicadas and lantern flies within. Worth twice the price. Looks exactly like this:

Cicadas and Lantern Flies

Lantern Flies are closely related to cicadas, are usually more colorful and are called Lantern Flies because of the lantern-like extension of their head.

    I also saw a weak lanternbug outside while walking home from school so i picked it up and put it on a maple tree with many of them on them. I also stroked one of the lanternbugs head. It was sucking the sap from the tree. It was cute. I also hope to put the second batch of lemons babies in the big tank on the weekend.

    Has anyone ever determine how closely related cicadas and lantern flies are. Like 1 million years or 10 million years or 100 million years…?
