Brood XIII Arrived in Indiana Today

Well I'm finally here in the mid-west for the Brood XIII Magicicada distribution mapping. I'm here helping out the folks at UC Storrs Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. I have decided to take it upon myself to try to find the eastern-most edge of Brood XIII's distribution range. Older records would seem to indicate that Brood XIII's range stretches along the southern border of Indiana and Michigan as far east as Sturgis, MI.

It would seem that this article has some folks up-in-arms about whether or not there are Brood XIII Magicicadas in Southern Michigan. Hopefully I will have some luck and find some. I'll let you know tomorrow. Stay posted.

I'm just too beat to look now. I left my place at 6:00 am today and I finally stopped in Howe, Indiana at a Holiday Inn Express right off of the Route 80/90 Toll Road just south of Sturgis, MI. It is 8:00 pm!
