NZ Cicada
I’ve been viewing several cicada sites and read about periodical and annual cicadas. I would like more information about the annual cicadas. Can you direct me to a website? At the moment, we are surrounded by the glorious singing of oodles of cicadas. Are you able to provide any detail about the one in the attached photo? This one allowed me to get really up close and personal without taking flight. Regards,
Nelson, NZ.

Hi Margaret,
We love Lindsay Popple’s awesome Cicada website, but it is dedicated to Australian species. We will check with Lindsay and see if he knows what species this is. Lindsay quickly wrote back: “Hi Daniel, The cicada species from New Zealand is Amphipsalta zelandica. See http://hydrodictyon.eeb.uconn.edu/projects/cicada/sp_pages/NZ_species/A_zealandica.html Cheers, Lindsay.”
