Neocicada hieroglyphica

Neocicada hieroglyphicaFound throughout the south coastal areas from southern Maryland through Florida, Neocicada hieroglyphica is not an easy critter to catch. They are heard singing from late June through July and the common name "July screamer" has been suggested. Choruses consist of many males singing from 5 to 40 feet from the ground. When there are large numbers in a chorus the song changes to a pulsating song type that isn't often heard. They seem to be partial to Chestnut oak here a male is pictured on a white oak.
