Moved from Swamp Cicada.

Linked images (which is what you get if you do "Add Image" when you're looking at another image) are only for the same specimen. In this case, it looks like your first two shots were one specimen and the latest two are another- so I unlinked them and linked the pairs. I also moved this pair to the Tibicen chloromera guide page.

Thank you.

Not Tibicen linnei
This specimen is not T. linnei, the dark pronotal collar with the green spots is indicative of Tibien chloromera which is common in West Virginia. Further substantiation of this is in the ventral view. Tibicen linnei has a median shinning longetudinal black band that runs down the underside of the abdomen which is absent in this specimen.

In addition this specimen is a male and the opercula are longer than wider which is also indicative of Tibicen chloromera.


Thank you.
