    Good evening,
    I live in Jacksonville, Florida and have recently come across two cicadas, one alive and the other dead. The dead one, I believe to be a brightly colored lyric cicada. The live one was much darker but had many of the same type of marking, except for a white stripe bisecting the thorax and abdomen. Is there a way I can send in a couple pictures to get help with identification?
