Tibicen resh - Megatibicen resh

Tibicen resh
I live in Denver, Colorado. My dog just brought one of these in. I have never seen one of these here. Are they native or how would it have gotten here?

Tibicen sp.
There are many Tibicn species here in the US and quite a few are very similar in apperance (color & pattern).

Although, there are several species of Tibicen in Colorado, it is unlikely the species you encountered was T. resh, I'd suspect it was Tibicen dealbatus (a similar looking species).

Moved from Tibicen pronotalis.

Tibicen resh (?)
This cicada looks a lot like T. resh.

Based on images alone, these two species can appear to have overlap in traits.

Please compare to Tibicen resh!

Tibicen pronotalis
The contrasting green thorax is distinctive.
