Periodical and Annual Cicada together

two cicada species together
I’m looking forward to the end of Brood XIII in the western suburbs of Chicago, as I’m getting pretty tired of them, then I saw this. Can you identify the green one for me? I love your website.

Hi Carol,
Your Periodical Cicada on the left is being accompanied by one of the green Annual Cicadas in the genus Tibicen. They are often called Dogday Harvestflies since they normally appear in late summer, but this specimen arrived a bit early. A true expert would be needed to give you an exact species.
