Diceroprocta biconica
Keys Scrub Cicada

Thanks Mr. Reynolds!
I was hoping it was something special to the keys.

Nice FIND!
These cicadas are slightly variable in overall coloration and pattern, but all have the characteristic broad white bar across the back (between the thorax and base of the abdomen). The males have relatively long pointed (triangular-shaped) opercula...slightly visible here.
