John Cooley, one of the folks behind the Michigan Cicadas cicada site and the Cicada Central site now has a third site, which promises to have the best and most up to date Magicicada information. The new site is magicicada.org.
This site is designed to serve several purposes for 2008:
- It is a place where we are directing people to report cicada emergences, so that the records may be collected and geocoded.
- It’s got the best set of brood maps yet.
- It mirrors the information on Cicada Central.
- It will have better photos (the species photos for M. tredecim are second generation, but I’m working on even better ones).
