Carolina Mantis - Stagmomantis carolina - Female
Wildwood Park; Radford, Virginia, USA
September 21, 2018
I've never seen a mantis this color before. However, I do see that this looks similar to Stagmomantis carolina in the Guide. I'd like an ID, please.
Is this an adult - it is a bit smaller that ones I've seen. Also, what gender, please?
