Found this amonst my Milkweed clinging to a volunteer Maple sapling.. It is over 3 inches long. My son said it was a Seventeen Year Cicada. I just want to confirm or correct.. for my files and for Bug Files.
CLOSED: Is This a Seventeen Year Cicada
It is a Cicada, but not the Seventeen Year Cicada. It is the Bush Cicada Tibicen dorsata: http://bugguide.net/node/view/20416/bgpage
I have created a BugFiles entry for it here: http://davesgarden.com/bf/go/4790/
Please add your lovely images to it,
