The Museum

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

"Robust cicadas are distinguished by the shortness of their bodies in relation to their wing size. They used to share territories with brown cicadas, but robust cicadas tend to prefer dry locales. As you'd expect, they make a rather robust call, though males actually change their sound around females."


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

"I caught a robust cicada! They're pretty docile on rainy days."
