Aug 3, 2020: Dog-day Cicada

One of the annual cicadas is the Dog-day Cicada (Netibicen canicularis), named for the "dog days" of late Summer when this species is heard singing.  The clear forewings have a greenish base along the leading edge.  There are 3 primary color morphs of this species (green, brown, & dark/near black), with the green being the most common and widespread. (Wolf. Oesterreich, 7/27/20)
