A Neotibicen tibicen tibicen (Swamp/Morning Cicada) from Raleigh, NC. Caught by Bill Reynolds. Caught by me (Dan Mozgai).
The next two photos compare the Swamp cicada from Raleigh with another from my collection (from New Jersey) with darker coloring.
Two Swamp Cicadas – dorsal view. Notice the variation in coloring.
Two Swamp Cicadas – ventral view. Note the difference in the shape of the tymbal cover. The one from Raleigh has the pointed tymbal cover.
