Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
Despite my ID suggestion, I wish to change the common name and I suspect it should be called a 'masked devil' They are all the same species (Cyclochila australasiae) but yellow Monday is all orange/yellow. The masked devil has a black mask and abdomen and may be green or orange. http://www.flickr.com/photos/22616984@N0... The all green form is the familiar greengrocer and there is a dark brown form too. I saw them emerging last night; the black color comes a day later http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/511... Complex? Welcome to biology.
Imagine in 3D......
Thanks Mark, Rieko, Stephen & Martin

This is a color variation of the common greengrocer cicada. Nice.
