Diemeniana frenchi is a dark coloured cicada. The wings are transparent with reddish and pale veins. There six species inn the genus, and they are all found in south east of Australia. This genus has a "nodal line" on the forewings (a line separating the two halves of the wing, where the wing bends during flight). The eyes are prominent and brown coloured.
feeds on plant sap
Females lay their eggs in bark. When the eggs hatch the nymphs or larvae fall to the ground and burrow into the soil. Cicadas spend their larval stage as nymphs underground feeding on roots. They tunnel to the surface before their final moult into adult cicadas.
Diemeniana frenchi is found in southern New South Wales and Victoria
