I live in Georgia near Savannah and I’m from Indiana. I’ve been around Cicada’s all my life and I love them. But tonight I heard something hit the house (and it sounded big) but when I looked down this is what I found! I’ve never seen a cicada this tiny! A cicada larvae is bigger than this cicada! Could you please help me identify what type it is?

Hieroglyphic Cicada

Hi Elise,
There are even smaller Cicadas in the world, and species that inhabit arid environments are often quite tiny.  We believe this may be a Hieroglyphic Cicada,
Neocicada hieroglyphica based on images posted to BugGuide.  The species if found in the South and it feeds on oaks.
