I spotted this cicada today in Louisville, Kentucky. I saw the earlier post on this site saying some of the brood X are emerging early. Is this one of the early cicadas?
Because of your Kentucky location, we believe this Periodical Cicada is also a Brood X straggler. According to Cicada Mania: “Brood X stragglers are emerging in Tennessee (around Knoxville), Washington D.C., Virginia (counties around D.C.), Maryland (counties around D.C.), Ohio (around Cincinnati), Delaware, Indiana, & Kentucky! These stragglers are emerging 4 years ahead of time.”
