I found this dead in the city centre of Montpellier, France.  It was 6cm long.  I thought it was a moth at first because of the size but its wings aren’t very moth like.  I am no expert and would love to identify this.
Kind Regards

Cicada

Dear Alex,
You are not the first person who has written to us mistaking a Cicada for a giant fly.  One common name for annual Cicadas in North America is Dog Day Harvestfly.
