I added it Cammie, but the map shows only an area in the USA… Is it world wide Cicadas?

haha, thanks Leuba. I see you found my photo of this Cicada from Costa Rica. The one I found in Belize (2015) had red eyes, this one's were black, and this one was a little more green in colour.

See the trippy turquoise, red eyed cicada from Belize, here.

Bayucca, you need to reconsider your ID suggestion: This is deffinitely a ciccada, not a Emerald cockroach!
