Abstract: Brood X of the periodical cicadas emerged in parts of western Ohio during late May and June, 1987. Periodical cicadas were reported in 26 counties in western Ohio, including three new county records. The 1987 distribution was compared to the historical record of periodical cicadas in Ohio, revealing that the distribution of Brood X has been greatly reduced in the last century and that 12 counties have witnessed 4-year accelerations of the 17-year life cycle.
