Cicada on sunflower - Neotibicen auriferus

Cicada on sunflower - Neotibicen auriferus
Between Clearwater and Haysville, Sedgwick County, Kansas, USA
September 9, 2008
This individual was found in our restoring grassland/overgrazed pasture not far from the draw, which has trees, including cottonwoods and willows. I believe it's a Tibicen, perhaps T. auriferus?, but the reddish-brown and black coloration, dark eyes, and lack of pruinosity have me questioning whether that is accurate or not. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.
