Various Brood XIV Updates

Lisa's Magicicada septendecim

Today, a report was recieved from the Report Brood XIV Periodical Cicadas that Long Island is finally starting to see the Periodical Cicadas emerging. Like Massachusetts, finally the Pink and Yellow Pips noted on the map can be changed to Red. I suspect as time goes on we'll be getting in more reports.

The Massachusetts Distribution Map Has Been Broken Out!

I decided in order to save you the time of zooming in on Massachusetts, I separated it out from the main Brood XIV distribution map. While you can still see the entire distribution range of Brood XIV for this year on the previous map, you can also look at a "zoomed in" version of only Cape Cod.

Thanks to Kit who sent in a photo of a white-eyed Cicada nymph found several days ago. Kit is going to try to bring it to a full adult cicada. Hopefully it will have White eyes. Click the thumbnails below for some nice closeup shots supplied by Kit.

Finally, I'll end this update with a cool shot of Lisa's adult Magicicada previously reported as well as a shot of Lisa and myself from Memorial Day weekend. That species of cicada on my T-shirt is known as Tibicen bermudiana. It was endemic to Bermuda and went extinct when Bermuda's Cedar forests were wiped out.
