We found this bug on our car in San Jose Ca. On March 19th 2014 around mid day. It stayed on our car as we drove to the store. It finally left our car after we drove to another store. It did not move as we opened and closed the door it was on.
Any info would be great. Thank you.
This is a Cicada, a member of a family of insects that are often mistaken for large flies. Though your images are all out of focus and lacking in critical detail, we believe your Cicada is in the genus Platypedia based on this photo posted to BugGuide.
