Please could you identify it for me.
Thank you.

Hi Bob,
This is some species of Mantis, but we cannot say for certain which species.  We didn’t expect to find your Mantis from Western Australia on the Brisbane Insect website, and we were correct in that expectaion.  We suspect this might be a species confined to your western region and there is not a good insect identification site for that area.

Draco just wrote in to identify this as a male Sphodropoda species.
