The Brown Cicada is found on trees.
The Brown Cicada can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"The crying of brown cicadas is usually associated with the sound of hot oil sputtering. Their wings are brown instead of being transparent, making them a rare species throughout the world. While completely harmless by themselves, in swarms they can cause devastation to crops."
Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:
"I caught a brown cicada! These things are everywhere!"
