Tibicen lyricen f. engelhardti
Easily confused with the Swamp Cicada, this is a dark form of T. lyricen. Cicadas like this one are common across much of NC from the upper coastal plain, fall-line hills, Piedmont, west to the mountains.

T. lyricen and T. tibicen (chloromerus) are usually the first Tibicen species we see here in NC and across much of the southeast - as early as mid-May/early June in most areas & even a few weeks earlier in Florida and the Gulf Coast.

looks like Swamp Cicada, Tibicen tibicen
to me. Wait for Bill to confirm to be sure.
