Hi!
I’ve been looking for a few weeks trying to identify a mantid I got that lost her label where I got her from and the person I got her from also has no idea of her species without the label, please could you help to try to identify her?
Thank you!

Dear A.H.,
This is an immature Mantis, and they are more difficult to identify than adults of the species.  We are posting your images and perhaps one of our readers will write in with a proper identification.

  1. This appears like the species I posted about just like mine this one I’m assuming is in the hierodula species because most of them have the yellow dots on their forearm
