  • Asiadodis yunnanensis (Chinese shield mantis) "Cobra" praying mantis Choerdodis

    Asiadodis is a genus of praying mantises native to Asia. Because of their extended, leaf-like thoraxes, they are commonly known as shield mantis, hood mantis, and leaf mantis. They were formerly included in Choeradodis, a similar genus of mantis from the Americas.

    Asiadodis yunnanensis (Chinese shield mantis) "Cobra" praying mantis

    Asiadodis was established by Roy (2004) to distinguish from
    Choeradodis. Asiadodis have only been found in Southeast
    Asia and South Asia. There are two species involved in: A.
    yunnanensis and A. squilla. A. yunnanensis (Wang and Liang
    1995) is a type of praying mantises belonging to the order
    Mantodea, family Mantidae, subfamily Choeradodinae, genus
    Asiadodis, distributing in China, Yunnan. Asiadodis yunnanensis
    captures insect pests as food and is recognized as an important natural enemy for biological control. In this study, samples
    of A. yunnanensis were collected from China, Mengla,
    Xishuangbanna, Yunnan (21.47N, 101.54E) and stored in the
    praying mantises specimen room of College of Plant Medicine,
    Qingdao Agricultural University with an accession number
