I thought it was dead just hanging on our screen enclosure. When I removed it and started taking more pictures its legs wiggled and out crawled this larvae. It moved very fast, head down until reaching a potted plant I placed under the table edge. It quickly buried it's self. Within two hours the cicada was dry, brown, crunchy.

Moved from Tibicen figuratus.

Tibicen davisi
3 cm = slightly more than 1 inch
To qualify as a T. figuratus, I'd be more satisfied with > 6 cm.

Additionally, the green pigments are not typical of T. figuratus (teneral or sclerotized).

All of the above, coupled with the seemingly disproportiantely larger head, leads me to believe this to be a T. davisi.
