Number 6592. The winged insect is a dog-day/annual cicada (Hemiptera/Auchenorrhyncha: Cicadidae) that has emerged from its nymphal ‘shell’ (exoskeleton; what you called a June bug). They are called annual cicadas because some emerge every year, and dog-day because their peak emergence usually in late summer (the dog-days).
