Batwing Cicada (Tosena aguila).
Bat Wing Cicada (Tosena aguila).
Male cicadas create a sound from structures called túmbale located in the sides of the abdomen. Their singing is created by contracting and relaxing the tumbal muscles which produces a clicking sound. Their hollow abdomen amplifies the resonance of the sound- that’s why they are so loud!
