    S. denticulata mantis is a small mantis species, common name is Glass mantis, most are light green and have wings resembling the lacewings wings. Just an inch in length and short legged. If you are looking for a quite non assuming mantis which will eat blue bottle flies, then try this one. Native to China. 

    Sinomantis denticulata is a species of praying mantis native to Southeast Asia, specifically the tropical rainforests of China, Thailand, Myanmar, and Laos. This species is most commonly found in dense forests or grasslands and thrives in warm, humid climates.

    I have had this species in breeding and you can reference the images with ootheca as my first successful fertile ooth.
