Cicada

Description:

The Australian "red eye" cicada. "The name is a direct derivation of the Latin cicada, meaning "tree cricket". There is no word of proper English, or indeed Germanic, etymology for the insect. In classical Greek, it was called a tettix, and in modern Greek tzitzikas—both names being onomatopoeic."

Notes:

Locals call it "yayay"
