MuseumEdit

An information board in the bug exhibit will provide information about this bug.

"Evening cicadas cry when it's dark out, regardless of what time of day it actually is. People tend to think it's the end of summer when they hear the cry of evening cicadas. However, this species of cicada starts crying at the end of the rainy season, which generally falls in July."

In real lifeEdit

EveningCicada

The Evening Cicada is a species of cicada that can be found throughout East Asia. They inhabit the cypress, cedar and hardwood forests, from the mountainous regions in Hokkaido to the plains of northern Kyūshū, and even in Southern Kyūshū they can be found in slightly higher mountain elevations. It is most common in Japan, where it is called the Higurashi (蜩, 茅蜩, ひぐらし.) Its kanji name is derived from the character for Miscanthus, a type of reed that it inhabits. It is also known as Kanakana (カナカナ) because of the noise that it makes.

Adult males have a body length of 28–38mm, while the females have a body length of 21–25mm. The body is colored reddish-brown with green around the compound eye and in the center and back of the thorax; mountain dwelling specimens tend to be darker. The Planthopper Parasite Moth Epipomponia nawai uses the animal as a host for its eggs.
