Fountain Inn, Greenville County, South Carolina, USA

I think it may be a Tibicen linnei but, could be a pruinosus (or maybe I’m way off! lol)

50mm including wings

This is pure linnei judging b
This is pure linnei judging by morphology! linnei in the southeast have very pointed opercula! This example has this trait to the extream!

Moved
Moved from ID Request.

I agree with Tibicen linnei
It's definitely not a T. pruinosus.

The strongly bowed costal margin, the shape and darkness of the operculum, and a dark ventral stripe have me leaning towards T. linnei, too:



By the way, that's an awesome set of photos you have there! I wish all the cicada I.D. requests were like yours; sure does make identification a lot easier!

Cheers

 
Move?
Thanks Bill! Should I move it? There is only one picture from SC, and it is a coastal variation.

 
Yes, go ahead and move it
Everything about it says T. linnei to me. So, I would go ahead and move it to the T. linnei page.

Bill Reynolds will most certainly be looking at it within the next few days. If it needs to then be reassigned, he'll be able to do that for you.

Cheers
