Please compare with T. tibicen, swamp cicada
This is an excellent series of a molting cicada, but not of T. linnei.
Please compare with T. tibicen, swamp cicada.

This one seems to be out of s
This one seems to be out of sequence. Don't know if you can change the order, but you could add times to the titles. I think that would add some valuable data also.

 
change order
There is an easy way to change the order of the photos:

Press unlink. Now, this series will no longer be held together. Then, "tag" each photo starting with one and working until the end in the order you would like. They should all appear on the left side of your page. When the order looks good, hit "link images" and you are set!

 
OK, Thanks.
They're rearranged.

 
OK.
Will do.

 
Tibicen tibicen (chloromerus) - MALE
This is a swamp cicada, Tibicen tibicen/chloromerus

Identification of tenerals can be tough...nymphs are often even more difficult, esp. from pic's.

In this case, the coloration is typical (i.e. deeper greens & brighter colors - aquas - than seen in tenerals of linnei) and the shape of the elongated operculae are diagnostic for this species (tibicne/chloromerus).

Another EXCELLENT image series!
