The Museum

The Cicada Shell can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"Cicada larvae emerge from the ground in the evening and molt on trees, leaving behind empty shells. It's possible to find out the species of cicadas just be looking at these shells. Collecting the shells will tell you how many and what kind of cicadas inhabit a certain area."

Quote

Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:

"I found a cicada shell! It's just a shell of its former self!"
