female Tibicen tibicen ssp. australis
The "Southern swamp cicada". Populations of T. tibicen from Florida and Southern Georgia are usually brighter and more colorful then the widespread nominate subspecies of T. tibicen/chloromerus and are representative of ssp. australis. Because of their bright colors they are sometimes mistaken for Tibicen pruinosus/winnemanna.

Although I have never seen a real specimen of this particular cicada before, it is one of my favorites, particularly the salt marsh color form of T. tibicen ssp. australis.
