Professor Allen F. Sanborn, who was kind enough to examine photos of this cicada, has narrowed the identification to genera Pacarina, Ollanta, or Diceroprocta. The latter is in tribe Cryptotympanini, while the other two are in tribe Fidicinini. Both tribes are in subfamily Cicadinae.

Photo location: Pico Bonito National Park, Honduras.
