    Psaltoda moerens
    (species)
    Taxonomy: Animalia: Arthropoda: Insecta: Hemiptera: Cicadidae: Psaltoda: moerens
    Common Names: Bugs, Cicadids, Redeye cicada
    Lindsay Popple says

    The common name 'Black Prince' has also been associated with Psaltoda moerens, so it can lead to confusion. The accepted common name for this species is 'Redeye'. It has red eyes (in fresh specimens) and more extensive melanism on the wing venation than Psaltoda plaga. Psaltoda moerens is also noticeable larger than Psaltoda plaga.
