Neotibicen superbus (formerly Tibicen superbus; see Hill et al. 2015) is found in the southcentral United States, occurring in trees within grassland environments primarily in eastern Texas and Oklahoma but spreading into neighboring states. It is known from Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas (U.S.A.). Sanborn & Phillips report finding it in a variety of trees, both native and ornamental, including elm (Ulmus spp.), oak (Quercus spp.), juniper (Juniperus spp.) and mesquite (Prosopis spp.). (Sanborn & Phillips 2013).

The song is a rapid sputtery "cha-cha-cha" (Hill et al. 2015).
