    Re: Cicada (orni?)

    Hello,

     

    It's a cicada, but I'm not sure you can tell species apart from photos alone. We have had a live one and the expert said that even with a specimen in hand, if the animal doesn't 'sing' it's impossible to separate from a very similar species. DNA could help.

    Try other forums just in case you find someone who knows cicadas.
