mantid in Vargas Plateau Park on 2020 August 7 - Mantis religiosa
Fremont, Alameda County, California, USA
August 7, 2020
Size: couple inches
Tan mantid by trail in Vargas Plateau Regional Park on morning of 2020 August 7. I believe this is Mantis religiosa (European mantis) based on the shape of the head, the attachment of the fore-legs to the prothorax and the sizes and edges of the segments of the fore-legs.
