Hi Jake,

Thanks for sharing these great photos of T. tibicen tenerals. Another way to identify T. tibicen tenerals from other species of cicadas are via the green eyes. Also I just think that T. tibicen cicadas are cool in that from a morphological stand point that are more "hunched" at the meso-thorax (area behind the pronotal collar.

Thanks for sharing.
