Hi Sara, this is a great find! Please consider adding this to the Marvelous Mantids of the North East mission:

I noticed you have several spottings in your collection that you know the common name but are missing the scientific name. It would be great if you could add the scientific name to those spottings so they can be considered complete. Until the scientific name is added, the spotting is considered "unknown".

Thanks! I look forward to seeing more spottings from you. :-)
