Neotibicen robinsonianus (formerly Tibicen robinsonianus; see Hill et al. 2015) is found across the central region of the eastern deciduous forests. It is known from Alabama, Arkansas, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia (U.S.A.). (Sanborn & Phillips 2013). It has been associated with oaks (Quercus spp.), locusts (Robinia spp.), and cedar (probably Juniperus virginiana L.). Sanborn & Phillips(2013) reported that they have found these cicadas associated with oaks and various other deciduous trees.

The song, typically delivered from high in the canopy, consists of slow repeated rasps (~1/s) (Hill et al. 2015).
