|Sound of male Hyalessa maculaticollis in Japanese mainland.|
Hyalessa maculaticollis is found in China, Japan, the Korean Peninsula and maritime areas of Russia. Individuals in Korea, Eastern China and Far east Russia were considered to be Hyalessa fuscata (Distant, 1905) but recent taxonomic data shows H. fuscata is a synonym of H. maculaticollis.
The colour of Hyalessa maculaticollis varies between green and black depending on the location. Also, only the males make a calling sound, and this changes depending on the location. Japanese individuals have a call that sounds like 'min—minminminminmi...' (Japanese: ミーンミンミンミンミンミー…). Meanwhile, the sound of Korean individuals is like 'minminminminmi...' (Korean: 맴맴맴맴맴...) and a longer note duration (min—....) is found in the latter half of the sound. The sound of this species affected the Korean word '매미' (cicada). Chinese individuals' sound is similar to that of Korean individuals.
Their median life cycle from egg to natural adult death is around three years.
