Tibicen tibicen (=T. chloromera)
Refer to post by J.R. Maxwell (below)

-----------------------

Tibicen tibicen (syn. Tibicen chloromera) - TENERAL
Green eyes are key feature to this species - coupled with the green pronotal patches and pinkish-green body while teneral!

Since your picture is of a teneral (soft/newly emerged), I suggest reviewing and comparing it to the images below.

refer to the following images:

Not an ID but
please read comments on this image (maybe they apply here?)

 
Good shot!
You CALLED it well!

 
Tibicen tibicen (=Tibicen chloromera)
Absolutely!

These are both series of pic's showing a teneral (newly emerged) Tibicen tibicen!

 
Swamp Cicada (Tibicen tibicen)
That would make sense because I found it at a local marsh.

 
Tibicen tibicen (=chloromera)
These do seem to be common around water, however, there are parts of the range that defy this tendency - particularly across much of the South....but then again, you're never that far from water down here either ;)

Nice!
Check out the animated version I just stumbled on last night!
