This is awesome!

Will you add location data to the observations soon?

Anotado por zdanko hace mas de 2 años

Hi @zdanko, I did not take photos of every label because I had limited time at the CUIC, so I do not have location/date data for most of these specimens. I do, however, have range data from other sources. I just need to figure out how to use the Atlas function on iNat!

Okay... not ideal since they are now Casual, but if there's nothing to do, it's okay.

Here's how to create atlases (about a third of the way down the page there is a tutorial):

Hi @zdanko,
Excellent! I will work on the atlases when I have time.

Bless your cotton socks for sharing this, @humanbyweight! What a nice resource this will be for cicada fans here on iNat. I was thrilled to get my copy of Social Wasps, btw, and am already very much looking forward to your next guide.

Superb effort. Quite a reasonable collection!. Some of those unlinked have also appeared on iNat

Thanks for doing this. It would be useful in this post if you provide what the acronym CUIC stands for.

Many of the ranges will be in Sanborn & Heath " The Cicadas (Hemiptera: Cicadoidea: Cicadidae) of North America North of Mexico" second Ed
.They have added distribution maps this time.

@ozzicada Thank you! I have been studying that paper in detail.

@humanbyweight Is this about Cornell's collection?

@humanbyweight its useful to spell out the definition of an acronym at the first occurrence in an article. Inat allows you to edit articles after they've been posted.
