Excellent work @humanbyweight ! I've heard allegations that Arizona State University might have the largest cicada collection in the U.S. Have you seen their collection?

@cicadamania that would be very cool, but I don't have the means to travel outside the northeast any time soon.

Posted by humanbyweight about 2 years ago

Neato! What about your Smithsonian or "cicada Central" at UConn?

Posted by ozzicada about 2 years ago

We'll see!

Awesome, Chris!

Great job as always! O. yaimaensis and O. rimosa ohioenssis are exceptional. The former is likely extinct sadly.
