Neotibicen similaris (formerly Tibicen similaris; see Hill et al. 2015) is found in the southeastern United States. It is known from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina (U.S.A.) (Sanborn & Phillips 2013).
Sanborn & Phillips report this species calling from multiple large deciduous trees and it has been associated with turkey oak (Quercus laevis Walter) (Sanborn & Phillips 2013). The song consists of an unusual clacking rattle with a sudden acceleration (Hill et al. 2015).
