Hello bugman,
We love your site. Wonderful fauna we have in the world and great you let us share in the variety. Now we know a lot better what we see in the house and around it.
We found this beauty in our garden the day before yesterday. We have never seen a mantis like this one before! Have you ever? What is the name of it?
Thank you for your answer.

  1. It looks like Acanthops or Decimiana. This one is too fat, I don’t know why, but looks like this indivudual:
