Red Form Citrus Cicada

Dear Nosy Cindi,
Based on this BugGuide image, we have learned that this is the Red Form of the Citrus Cicada,
Ciceroprocta apache f. ochroleuca.  According to BugGuide:  “D. apache f. ochroleuca is a pallid reddish-brown color form most frequently found in n. Arizona, Utah, Nevada and California. ”  The sound produced by some Cicadas is quite loud.
