Tibicen sp. - Hadoa parallela - male

Tibicen sp. - Hadoa parallela - Male
Santa Cruz County, Arizona, USA
Tibicen parallelus (MALE)
nr. Tubac Presidio,e. off I-19, Santa Cruz Co., Arizona (30 July 1998)

These small cicadas occur in mountain canyons and low desert, but do not appear in great numbers. Perhaps I was collecting during the wrong part of the year or they are very spotty in distribution. They do seem to occur in areas where water is more abundant (speaking of deserts, everything relative).

Moved from Frass.

Moved from Hadoa parallela.

Moved from Tibicen parallelus.

NOTE - Tibicen parallelus
NOTE - Tibicen parallelus:
little if any frosted grey pruinosity
black pronotum
narrower wing margin than seen in chiricahua
dark eyes

Please bear with us ;)
The Tibicen guide pages are still under construction. Western taxa have long been more difficult to id. based on limited lit. and considerable confusion interpreting original descriptions. The initial id. was based on limited info, fewer guide pages for placement (incomplete species list) and comparison with similar images placed under chiricahua.
