Hi Stephenie
Thank you for the data point. I actually just saw this photo on Bugguide.

This is of a Tibicen canicularis emerging from it's exuvia. Not to worry, cicadas do not bite as they do not have the mouth parts to do so.

Thank you for the info. I'll be sure to keep my eyes peeled next season for the broad ones
