The false cicada chimney, longitudinally cut off.

It was not hallow like the true chimney. I prefer to call it as “False cicada chimney.” I believe that the cicada nymph dag the tunnel to the surface in advance and built the false chimney as a plug to plug it’s tunnel opening and it would use this previously dug tunnel to emerge from the underground on the coming cicada season ( beginning in late February or early March.)
