Explanations to my Cicada Ids

If you are here wondering why I identified your Neotibicen or Megatibicen observation the way I did, you've come to the right place.

Q: Why did you put my shell observation at genus or tribe?
A: Neotibicen and Megatibicen shells cannot be identified to species, and the genus cannot be distinguished without a size comparison.

Q: Why did you put my Neotibicen observation at genus?
A: Many Neotibicen species cannot be identified without seeing minute details, and can only be identified if they are seen in the photo.

Check it out! A Bioblitz in Lincoln just for tufted titmice!

Tufted titmice are rising in numbers in the city of Lincoln. Because of this, I created a bioblitz specifically for tufted titmice in Lincoln that starts on June 1. Observe as many tufted titmice in the city as you can before october 31, while helping track the bird's rising populations in the city! https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/tufted-titmice-in-lincoln-nebraska
