Need Help Identifying This Insect.
Hello Bugman,
I think your site is neat, although i have to admit that i have a slight fear of insects, your site allows me to look at them within the safety of my computer screen. Heres a quick picture of one i found near the front door of our house that intrigued me. My initial thought was praying mantis, but i could not find a kind that matched exactly to the one i found, so im hoping you can help me out. Thanks,
Brian, Southern Florida.

Hi Brian,
This is a Grizzled Mantis, Gonatista grisea, so your identification was correct. They are harmless.
