  • Mantodea species list. Taxonomy tree of life

    The following list of mantis genera and species is incomplete. It is based on the "Tree of Life Project", which is the primary (but not the only) reference for the taxonomy shown here. It will differ from those derived from taxonomic categorizations made before 2003.

    The insect Order Mantodea consists of over 2,400 species in about 430 genera, of which a majority are in the family Mantidae. Formerly, only the family Mantidae was recognized within the order.

    Note that in fsome cases, common names in the English language are loosely applied to several different members of a particular genus, or even for species in various genera. For example, "giant Asian mantis" is used for various members of Hierodula, "dead leaf mantis" may refer not only to various species of Deroplatys, but to all brown mantises that use leaf mimicry for camouflage. "flower mantis" refers to numerous mantises, especially those belonging to or similar to those of genus Creobroter, and so on
