Tibicen chloromera in Connecticut

Tibicen canicularis teneral

As I do every year, today, I went to Connecticut to check out areas where last year and the year before, I have heard T. chloromera in areas of Connecticut where they just shouldn't be. I must've gone too early because while I heard some in the areas that I frequent, I just wasn't hearing the numbers like last year. I will definitely have to go back a few more times before I give my final report for this year.

T. canicularis Female Found While Eclosing - Suffield CT

T. canicularis female Suffield, CTOne of the places I frequent is a cemetery on Hill Street in Suffield, CT. Today as I was walking around, I found a T. canicularis female just completing the eclose process. It was around 12:30 pm. See if you're determined, you can find cicadas molting during all times of the day. So in the end, this trip really wasn't wasted. I already had two species of Cicadas from Connecticut, one T. lyricen and one T. chloromera now I can add a third, T. canicularis. Of course, Connecticut still has other species as well. There are T. auletes, T. linnei, O. rimosa and Periodical Cicadas and I'm sure there are more. I'd love to get a few specimens of those as well :)
