This one confuses me. It is a small male, cassinii size. Its ventral abdominal bands are narrow, like Decula, and do not appear to me to go up its sides. I did not discern an orange patch between eye and wing insertion point on its RIGHT SIDE, so I got excited thinking it might be a Decula cicada. But when I looked on its left side (last photo), I see an orange patch, which is indicative of Septendecim, the Pharoah cicada. So I assume this falls within intraspecific variation for Septendecim? Or can interspecific hybridization occur between Decula and the Pharoah? Guess it is hard to answer such questions when the adult of the species only emerges every 17 years. Then again, DNA tests could answer the question. I still have the individual specimen.

Description

This is a problematic cicada! Though clearly cassinii (that's all that has emerged in my location), it has an aberrant orange patch behind its right eye. The patch extends onto the pleura, and (interestingly) there is an orange patch on the right side of the head as well, between the eye and the cibarium (photo 5). This casts a little doubt on septendecim IDs made exclusively based on the presence of thoracic patches, and reinforces the importance of side + underside shots for ID.

I'll be interested to see if I encounter any more like this one; it may be a rare aberration.

Found this “blue-eyed” cicada the last Brood X year (2004, now 17 years ago). The eyes was definitely more blue in person, but they were still pale. I remember we had heard on the radio they (god knows who, honestly) were offering a million dollars to anyone who found one with the trait, but I was a budding pacifist and didn’t want them to kill it for display (perhaps, indeed, identifying with the bugger due to my own eye coloration)— so we just took these pictures and let it go. Honestly I can’t believe it’s a cicada year again. What a trip.
