Leaf footed bug - Chariesterus antennator

Leaf footed bug - Chariesterus antennator
Pioneers Park nature center, Lancaster County, Nebraska, USA
July 17, 2021
This pic is painfully just out of focus, but the modified antennae are super interesting, so I had to post.
Found on snow-on-the-mountain flowers

I've only ever seen one grass
I've only ever seen one grass cicada, I got a new picture phone. My mom's.
This picture was of course taken with a older phone. I didn't really care about Id'ing before last August.

I also found one on a nature walk. I kept it because the antenna were so cool.

*
is my favorite one so far. Edit: 50% of my pics were in a sweeping net. I would recommend a sweeping net from Acorn Naturist.

*
There are so many cool prairie bugs.

Oh!

Moved
Moved from ID Request.

I found one back in 2020 . Once, I put an angry one in a bag of my bugs. Well, it spun around on its abdomen tip and killed all the bugs. I have collected one, I am very interested.

Did you move back to NE?

Summer break vacation
Will be here till the 25th which is when they start to come out. (Late July into august).
I never lived here actually, I only come for Summer break every year.

Chariesterus- probably species Antennator
* I owed you for that derbid. Edit: (different subject) I am so!! lucky I found a rove beetle in the genus Xenodusa. I am posting tomorrow this is what it looks like (probably the wrong species) .

 
Thanks!
Since I’m now in NE, I’m gonna get a chance to find all the cool prairie bugs!
Today I caught a small grass cicada and a orange/black spittlebug(along with this and a cool robber fly, you might be able to give me an ID on that).
I’m on the lookout for Grand Western cicadas. Are you interested on those? If you are then it would be cool if we both caught one and posted them here. We would be able to compare them and see if there is any variation in the species.
Thanks again!
