Thanks
Thanks Andy - hope to see another cicada species, or even a few before the season is over.

Diceroprocta
The very long, narrow wings are characteristic of this genus. Its whitish dusting on the body makes species determination harder. This is probably D. arizona, a species without the usual yellow border on the pronotum (the first thoracic segment behind the head); see

Bob:
Come down out of the mountains and you can see Diceroprocta semitincta right here in the heart of Tucson:-) Moving these images to a guide page per Andy Hamilton's identification. Thanks for sharing these great images.

 
D. semitincta
I'll be on the lookout! Actually have seen quite a few good "bugs" in my tiny front yard. Going to the guide now to see what D. semitincta looks like. Thanks

 
Darn
Doesn't look like there are any D. semitincta in the guide - will redouble my efforts!
