I had to,post this cicada, most cicadas in DR are dark, this is the first time I see a light colored one.
Do you know the genus and species?

Hi Suzette,
I am also including the image you sent in a previous email of a dark Cicada.  The spotting on the wings in both individuals looks similar, so it is possible there is some color variation within a single species.  The markings on the lighter Cicada look similar to the North American genus
Tibicen, commonly called the Annual Cicadas.  Unfortunately, there is no good database of Dominican insects available online.
