Shiny Cicada

Description:

A metallic green cicada on my hand. Cicadas are extremely abundant at night here and this is one of the smaller species. This cicada is one of the many cicadas that are attracted to the lights at the veranda of Bambangan hostel. Only 16mm in length, excluded wings. Quite a pair of big eyes for a small creature. 4th photo - the underside.

Habitat:

Rainforests of Maliau Basin.

Notes:

Possibly an Allobroma kedenburgi as suggested by Ozzicada (David). >>>Map accuracy : 5km diameter.

Thank you very much Starleaf and Telse.
Most of the computer service center here in my town told me that my removable disk is a goner, luckily the last place I went to managed to solve the problem with an affordable price.

Chun Xing: I didn't realize cicada could be this beautiful - absolutely my favorite of your Maliau spottings.

By the way, glad you have solved your removable disk problem, else we wouldn't be able to see such wonderful creatures you captured on images in Maliau Basin.
