Sanders, R.L. 2016. A 3-Year survey of Oklahoma cicadas (Hemiptera: Cicadoidea: Cicadidae) with new state records. Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society, 89(4): 315-337.

Abstract

Between September of 2013 and September of 2016 an intermittent survey of the cicada diversity and distribution in Oklahoma was conducted. The results of this survey are presented here as a current updated annotated checklist.

Seven species in four genera are newly recorded as resident in Oklahoma:

Diceroprocta texana (Davis, 1916),
Megatibicen figuratus (Walker, 1858),
Neotibicen davisi harnedi (Davis, 1918),
Neotibicen linnei (Smith & Grossbeck, 1907),
Neotibicen robinsonianus (Davis, 1922),
Okanagana viridis Davis, 1918, and
Pacarina shoemakeri Sanborn and Heath, 2012.

This brings the total number of species inhabiting the state to 41. Discussed are seven additional species possibly occurring in the state and Oklahoma's cicada diversity.
