Neotype - Tibicen dorsatus - Megatibicen dorsatus - Male
Atchison State Fishing Lake, 7 mi. NW of Atchison, 39.6315oN, 95.1742oW, 285 m., Atchison County, Kansas, USA
August 26, 2007
Here is classic Tibicen dorsatus (this might be the neotype Jeff designated, the holotype was lost a long time ago) As you can see, the sub-costa is a different color than the costa. A second, though more variable feature are the russet tympbal covers. They are black in T. tremulus
