  • Stagmatoptera supplicaria Avocado praying mantis

    Stagmatoptera supplicaria Avocado mantis Formally known as the Amazon Spot Wing Mantis, this large, beautiful species is growing in popularity.

    CARE LEVEL: Intermediate

    HOUSING: Solitary

    SIZE: Large

    This is Stagmatoptera supplicaria aka the Amazonian Spot-Wing mantis. Native to the northern half of the South American continent, the species was discovered by Burmeister in 1838 and is noted for the particularly large 'eyes' on the wings as adults. They're one of my favorites and the colouration is absolutely stunning.
