My friend, Juan Pablo Silva, found and photographed this amazing mantis in the city centre of Medellin Colombia. He gave me permission to send it to entomology websites for identification obviously as long as I say he took the picture.
Here’s the flickr link to the mantis picture:

We do not recognize your friend’s Mantis, and we haven’t the time right now to search for its identity. There are many Mantis aficionados in the world, and perhaps one of our readers will write in with an identification before we can do the research.

We just received a comment that this isseudovates peruviana, which can be viewed on the Mantes Exotiques forum.
