Very neat spotting! Stick insects are not related to Mantids. I moved this out of the Marvelous Mantids of the World mission for you. There may be some local missions to which this may be added. The best way to search for them at this time is to do a Google search with "Project Noah mission" and then whatever your interest or location (you could put "Australia").

It comes up like this:

Hope this helps!
