Any ID for this guy?

Images of this individual: tag all
Cicada - Diceroprocta azteca Cicada - Diceroprocta azteca

Moved from Diceroprocta delicata.

The cicada in these pic's has bothered me for a while, not quite fitting under D. delicata (and not with aurantiaca either)- lacks the "Z" infuscation seen in both delicata and aurantiaca.

After sharing these images, the consensus is that these are D. azteca.
Although Diceroprocta azteca is variable, the cicada in thes pic's best fits this taxon.

Please note that cicada id's are difficult, especially so with regards to images. There may be other possibilities; however, until then, this cicada - to the best of our abilities to id - appears most congruent with azteca.

Moved from Diceroprocta.

Moved from Cicadas.

Diceroprocta (either delicata or aurantia) ?
The closest match I can find here on the guide is D. delicata, a species with which I am not familiar. There is also D. aurantia - I think it's lighter in color????

It's important to mention, some species are variable in color!

Image of Diceroprocta delicata

Yes my image certainly seems to match that species(besides color). Whatever it is, it was certainly very common down in the valley.
