Tibicen winnemanna (?)
Both T. linnei and T. winnemanna can be common in your area. Often side by side, or they may occupy their own loacalized areas.

I am confident this is a teneral (newly emerged by a couple hrs or so) T. winnemanna. These are often confused with T. linnei due to wing shape and similarity of appearance. Typically, the pronotal pattern in winnemanna contains less black and when teneral - as seen here - is a brighter green. Additionally, T. linnei populations here in the eastern US have very dark eyes (black to choc. brown), even when teneral.

Comapare with the following:
T. winnemanna
