T. winnemana (FEMALE)
I've noticed the brown maculations are often reduced or absent in females of winnemana making them more difficult to id. I had discussed this observation with several other cicada enthusiasts and experts. Essentially, many individual specimens may be virtually impossible to id with accuracy due to similarity between and among females of several related taxa/species.

Fortunately, in this case, the winnemana traits are in place, along with the dorsal brown maculations on the abdomen.
