Shot in a path behind our house. I only post it because I am pretty sure it was ovipositing...can anyone tell if its a female?

Moved from Salt Marsh Cicada.

Diceroprocta olympusa
Diceroprocta olympusa (ovipositing FEMALE)
Good Pic's!

This particular color morph of D. olympusa is VERY similar in appearance to D. viridifascia. In fact they can be difficult to separate in some images (due to angle or obstructions).

Please compare these images with others of D. olympusa here on bugguide.

Note the "Z" towards the end of the forewing, this infuscaton is usually absent in D. viridifascia, however, may be slight to quite evident in D. olympusa.
