  1. genus magicicada

    Genus Magicicada is a classification of insects that includes seven known species of periodical cicadas. These cicadas are native to North America and are known for their unique life cycle, as they spend most of their lives underground and only emerge once every 13 or 17 years. During this time, they reproduce, lay eggs, and then die, starting the cycle anew for the next generation. Their emergence is synchronized and the males produce a distinctive loud buzzing sound to attract females for mating.
