Indian Mantises
Created by

Mantodea is an order of insects that contains over 2,400 valid species and about 430 genera in 15 families worldwide in temperate and tropical habitats. Most of the species are in the family Mantidae. Historically, the term mantid was used to refer to any member of the order because for most of the past century, only the Mantidae family was recognized within the order.The term mantid only refers to the Mantidae family, meaning the species in the other 14 recently established families are not mantids, by definition and the term "mantises" should be used when referring to the entire order. They are sometimes confused with phasmids (stick/leaf insects) and other elongated insects such as grasshoppers and crickets.
