A discreet cicada
The gray cicada (Cicada orni) has an average body length of 1.1 in (28 mm), reaching 1.5 in (39 mm) in total length, wings included. Its wingspan is 2.9 in (74 mm). The insect's brown and green body is covered with a pruinosity, a waxy and slightly powdery layer that makes it almost undetectable on tree barks. The end of the gray cicada's wing veins is punctually spotted with eleven black dots visible on each of its front wings, a morphological feature characteristic of the species.
