Graptopsaltria nigrofuscata, the large brown cicada, is a species of cicada in the genus Graptopsaltria of the family Cicadidae found across East Asia, including Japan, the Korean Peninsula, and China. They are called aburazemi (アブラゼミ) in Japanese. The males make a loud chirping that ends with a click caused by a flick of the wings.


Large brown cicadae are usually about 55–60 millimetres (2.2–2.4 in) long, having a wingspan of roughly 75 mm (3.0 in).
