Abstract

Adult periodical cicadas (Homoptera: Cicadidae: Magicicada spp.) aggregate and mate in chorusing centers. The extent of this aggregation is shown by data on the numbers of nymphal skins, living adults, and carcasses collected at a chorusing center after it has been formed. The collection was continued until virtually all adults had died. Carcasses belong predominantly to males, showing that many females disperse after mating to oviposit elsewhere.
