Very small, visible length about 4mm. Color shiny reddish brown with black markings. Pointed eyes which direct towards the flower mantis identification.
Adjacent to a small stream. Altitude 1000m.
I have seen this tiny, first instar mantis four times in the past years; July and December and only within a few days of each spotting. Possibly indicating that the mantis breeds twice per year. I have no research to back up this observation.
