One of the beautiful cicada species found in and around this ever-growing Metropolitan city. Even the genus level identification not yet fully confirmed and looks distinct from other species in Rustia species when I checked. So might be new to science. Hayath has captured this species beautifully last year with multiple angles. Hope it gets researched well and it’s kind survives into the future even though the city is getting developed rapidly and destroying it’s potential habitat.
