Immature Brood XIX Nymphs Bethany, IL

It looks like Illinois is 2 weeks away from emerging. I think these are M. tredecassini.

Hey Jake,

Yes, those are definitely some immature nymphs. You can distinguish immatures from fully mature nymphs by the black color patches on the pronotum. (The area immediately behind the head). Since these lack those color patches, they are immature.

Thanks for sharing.
