    <head><meta charset="UTF-8" /></head>

    This is a wonderful small specie of mantis growing to an adult size of 25-33mm. Nymphs are dark brown, some being almost black in colour. They have banded legs and tiny lobes are present, this being more noticeable when larger Nymphs. Looking very carefully (mainly seen on adults), small spikes run along the Mantids neck. Their front arms are mainly a red/brown-banded affect and red is shown on the inside of the arms as a defense threat.

    When females turn sub-adult, you can generally see what colour they will turn out to be. Some Nymphs will have green along the back, on the un-opened wings and a green/yellow tip on the end of their abdomen. The adult colours for these Nymphs are generally light green/grey colour. The wings have a bright green stripe down each side and some "V" markings are present.

    The other sub-adult colour is a very dark brown, almost black throughout the body apart from the front arms. When adult, the females are mainly grey, almost silver along the neck and the wings have a slight tint of cream/brown on them. No green stripe is present, but the "V" marking is still there.

    The Males are similar to the latter females colour, but have darker bodies and the wings are a green/yellow colour. The males are also slightly smaller then the females, with long antennas.

    Easy to keep and most interesting to observe with its animated ritual like movementsĀ
