unknown cicada - Okanagana rimosa

unknown cicada - Okanagana rimosa
near Morden, Manitoba, Canada
July 18, 2008
Size: length aprox 4cm
I had no idea there were so many species of cicadae. This one shows up in my area most years but are more abundant in some than others. Can anyone direct me to the probable species. I have some closer head shots but this is my better one of the whole insect.

Okanagana rimosa
The small size and head narrower than the thorax give you the genus; and the underside being brown (instead of patterned in black and orange) give you the species.

There are only 3 cicada species in Manitoba: Tibicen canicularis, Okanagana canadensis, and this one.

Thank you
Thanks for the information on Manitoba cicadas. I'll keep my eyes (and ears) open in case any of the other two species are in my area. This specimin was unusually co-operative by being close to the ground and continuing to chirp while I snapped away
