Cicada - two different ones - Okanagana occidentalis

Cicada - two different ones - Okanagana occidentalis
Cody, Park County, Wyoming, USA
June 21, 2005
Size: 1 inch
NW Wyoming, approximately 6000 feet elevation. These two Cicadas are from two different areas. Both were on Juniper trees. I noticed that one is considerably darker than the other. I could not see any red in the eyes, nor any orange tinge in the wing membrane. Thanks for any help.

Okanagana occidentalis
This is the common, loud, northwestern species. There are lots more in California and adjacent states that look much like this.

Okanagana sp.
Now THIS is definitely an Okanagana species. The male's call is truly ear-splitting at close range:-)

two different species?
Do you think these are two different species? Check out the dorsal view I sent in on the darker one. Thanks
