Carineta viridicata Distant, 1883

Carineta viridicata Distant 1883: 19 . (Bugaba, Panama)

Remarks. This species is third of the large, primarily greenish Carineta species found in Panama. It is the largest of the three species with body lengths of approximately 24–27 mm and a wingspan of about 64–74 mm, the lower end of these ranges overlaps the largest of the other two species. The head and thorax are bright green with a more elongated green and pale ochraceous abdomen, the fore wing ulnar cell 2 is about two-thirds the length of ulnar cell 1, and the male opercula are widely separated. It differs from C. aestiva in the deeply sulcate postclypeus, the more angled lateral prothorax, the transverse fuscous stripe on the anterior prontoal collar, the dark ochraceous mesothorax and castaneous abdomen, the greater amount of pile especially on the ventral head and body, and the fore wing ulnar cell 2 is about seven-eighths the length of ulnar cell 1 in C. aestiva and differs from C. verna by castaneous head, the dull ochraceous mesothorax marked with piceous, and the pale castaneous abdomen, the greater amount of pile particularly on the ventral head and body, and smaller body length (20 mm) and wingspan (63 mm). This is a rainy season cicada with emergence recorded between early May and late July ( Wolda 1989).

Distribution. The species has been reported previously from Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, and Peru ( Metcalf 1963c; Sanborn 2011a; 2011b; 2013). It has been reported from Bugaba ( Distant 1883), from Barro Colorado Island ( Bartholomew & Barnhart 1984), and from Barro Colorado Island, Panama Canal Zone, 120 m altitude in lowland forest ( Wolda 1989; Wolda & Ramos 1992) in Panama.
