Cicada Sightings Index Page
Below are all user-submitted cicada sightings. If you believe that you have spotted a cicada - and have a photograph, please click on the link in the right-hand navigation under the "Submit Report" section. Cicada sightings are being solicated because they help in filling in gaps in the distribution of cicadas species.
Please note that not all entries below are actual cicadas but rather other types of insects that users thought may have been cicadas. These mis-identifications are just as important because they help in educating you to identify actual cicadas as well as aiding in identifying what the actual insect is.
Every entry contains a comment from Massachusetts Cicadas. When you submit a sighting you can either comment back or simply return for the identification of your particular cicada or non-cicada insect.
