Superb Cicada

Dear Bob,
This is not a Beetle.  It is a gorgeous Cicada.  We identified it as a Superb Cicada or Green Cicada,
Neotibicen superbus, thanks to BugGuide where it states that it:  “occupies several habitat types from forested to arid scrub. It is often associated with conifers; however, strong populations of this cicada can be found in areas where hardwoods are abundant.”

AKA Green Cicada

Location: Austin, Texas
