Hey Jake,

Thanks for the cool series of Tibicen photos. Like here in the east, our T. lyricens as well as our T. canicularis cicadas can vary in color forms and morphology. This is to be expected since they are found in different habitats all the way from mountainous terrain in the west to the coastal areas and sandy soils to the east.

Very cool series though, thanks for the photos and the distribution data.
