There is a Yahoo group where you can post your cicada pic's and questions!
+ There are several specialists, some of whom are very good with exotic cicadas from various parts of the world and someone might be able to help with difficult id's specific to regions.


Please check it out and join - tell the moderator, Bill Reynolds sent you ;)

Not a Tibicen species.
You will need to refer to Cicadas of the Indo-Pacific.
