|It looks like the cicada has not yet emerged from the shell. When it does, there will be a lateral split down the back of the shell & the empty shell will remain right where it is until you or nature ends up knocking it off. When the cicada emerges, it will be the most beautiful color green including the see through wings. Later, it will turn brown.|
