this spot could be a good fit for Mimetic Animals mission
Removed from the "Signs of Wildlife" mission, as it doesn't fit the description. That mission is for "the bones, fossils, webs, eggs, tracks, and other signs of wildlife" and not the actual animals themselves. Also, you seem to have a few other spottings that are mistakenly in that mission. Will you please edit them and remove them from there? Thanks!
It was in captivity. Thank for the name of the mantis!
This is a subadult female of Phyllocrania paradoxa, the Ghost Mantis! Did you find this in the wild? This is an African species and not native to Italia. They are keps as pets in Europe.
good spotting ! I hope you find out what type of leaf insect it is.
Buen camuflaje e imitación
