Cicadas are in the superfamily, Cicadoidea, in the order Hemiptera (true bugs). This family is divided into two groups; the Tettigarctidae, with two species in Australia, and the Cicadidae, with more than 3,000 species described from around the world.
The Nature’s Wonders Cicadas of the World comes with a good variety of cicadas found around the world. These include the Razor Grinder, an Australian cicada, noted for its greenish tint and buzz saw-like call. From Asia, there’s the Large Brown Cicada, native to Japan, the Korean Peninsula, and China and from Europe, the New Forest Cicada. The North American cicadas are represented by the yearly Putnam’s Cicada from the Western United States and the infamous 17-year Pharaoh Cicada from the Eastern United States (Brood X). The set completes with the Giant Cicada from Central and South America, which is easily as large as a human outstretched hand.
Cicadas have been featured in literature since the time of Homer's Iliad, and as motifs in art dating back to the Chinese Shang dynasty. They have been featured in myths and folklore as symbols of carefree living and immortality.
The Nature’s Wonders Cicadas of the World set comes in both Poser and DAZ Studio native versions and support Firefly, 3Delight, Superfly and Iray render engines.
