Cicadas from Vietnam

Martin Kolner sent us photos of two beautiful cicadas from Sapa Vietnam.

The first one belongs to the genus Angamiana, and I think it is an Angamiana floridula might be a Proretineta vermacula (Chou& Yao, 1985), according to David Emery.

The second cicada belongs to the genus Tosena.

According to David, the Tosena is “likely to be T.fasciata (melanoptera does not have orange anywhere), even though the dorsal markings are pretty bleached”.

    Hi Dan, I must revise the diagnosis for the top species as i think that it is more likely to be Proretineta vermacula (Chou& Yao, 1985).
