Unknown cicada - Okanagana magnifica

Unknown cicada - Okanagana magnifica
Red Mountain, Coconino County, Arizona, USA
June 4, 2017
Size: 2 inches in length
This morning there were so many cicadas on the junipers and pinyons near Red Mountain that it was almost deafening. It seems like there were at least 2 species, or at least some of them had orange on their wings/abdomens and the others more black wings with some white on the body. This one has dark eyes and the orange wings. Maybe some type of Okanagana?

Moved from Okanagana.

95% O. magnifica. Technicall
95% O. magnifica.
Technically you can't separate females from O. sperata.

Could be sympatric species
Some of the proto-perodical species will emerge at the same time and at the same location, to a very precise degree. The songs may sound different (pitch or song type) although they may not both sing at the same time of day.

Moved from Cicadas.
