cicada molting - Neotibicen tibicen - male

cicada molting - Neotibicen tibicen - Male
New Market, Madison County, Alabama, USA
July 28, 2006
Size: 1 and half inches
I found this cicada molting on a poison ivy leaf. There is a big poison ivy vine that grows up a red maple tree in our yard and I always find a lot of cicada skins on the under side of the leaves.

Moved from Swamp Cicada.

Moved from Tibicen.

Tibicen Tibicen (syn. Tibicen chloromera) - TENERAL
Green eyes are key feature to this species - coupled with the green pronotal patches and pinkish-green body while teneral!

Since your picture is of a teneral (soft/newly emerged), I suggest reviewing the images below.

refer to the following images:
