Cicada - Neotibicen similaris

Cicada - Neotibicen similaris
Savannah, on Wilmington Island, Chatham County, Georgia, USA
August 31, 2006
Size: 5.2 cm
Length (head to wingtip) 5.2 cm. Body length 3.5 cm. Upper abdomen has light to moderate patches of sericeous hairs, the upper thorax less so. Sericeous hairs on entire underside are overall denser, with some patches being pruinose. I believe it is a Tibicen, but I'm not sure on the species.
