This is definitely the cicada that I have been calling T. pruinosa. They are very common in central Arkansas and always call at dusk.

Moved from Cicadas.

Tibicen pruinosus
This is a common species in the mid-South. especially the states sharing parts of the Mississippi River Drainage.

Refer to the following:


Usually this species is a slightly more modest green (pea-green) in color than other related types. They also have a very nice undulating call. If you look up Tibicen pruinosus sound files on line, you should immediately recognize this insect based on the call even more readily than the image.

measuring Tibicens
You need the width of the head across the eyes in millimeters to differentiate these large cicadas. The overall length varies too much.
