    Clidonoptera lestoni mantis

    Chlidonoptera lestoni Roy, 1975

    This beautiful species had me intrigued not long ago when it emerged in the mantis hobby in Germany . The leopard pattern and design is stunning and not just another species, this one is bold, a good size and a beautiful flower pattern and designer like earth tones .

    this species is a winner by far and am glad to finally have some captive bred here in the USA 

    successful breeding here Usmantis 2/24/24 approximately 50 nymphs
