Tibicen pruinosa




Florida native


Found in woodlands and suburban areas of eastern and central North America.
The Tibicen genera are known as the dog day or annual cicadas since they appear in the late summer each year. They are actually on a 2 to 5 year life cycle, but there are emergences every year.
These photos are of a dead cicada that was on a sidewalk in a wooded area of a city park. It was becoming ant food.
