looks like T. pruinosus
Tenerals (fresh) cicadas can be difficult.

T. pruinosus and T. linnei can be very similar in color and wing morphology and both occur in your area.

However, T. linnei usually has more strongly curved costae, outer margins to the wings and darker eyes. This cicada has more typical pruinosus shaped wings and slate colored eyes, leading me to suspect T. pruinosus.

Hope that helps.

 
Helps immensely :0)
Thanks, Bill, for the pointers and new vocabulary words. Wonderful. It seems to be a good cicada summer. Much afternoon and evening serenading.
