Neotibicen similaris, 01 September 2013

Neotibicen similaris, the Similar dog-day cicada;
Volusia county, Florida (01 September 2013).

One of our more-common annual cicadas in central Florida is the Similar dog-day cicada. They can sport some seriously sharp figure-ground contrast in their dark patterning. This individual was photographed on our back patio.
