Mantispid

Dear Phyliss,
Though it resembles a Preying Mantis, your Mantispid is an unrelated insect that shares a similar method of capturing prey with its namesake by using its raptorial forelegs.  Mantispids are Nerve Winged Insects that are classified with Lacewings and Antlions in the order Neuroptera.
