Size: Males 65~80 mm, females 68~85 mm in length. Tenodera angustipennis are often brown or green. Tenodera angustipennis proportionately have a more elongate pronotum and shorter, narrower tegmina and wings than Tenodera sinensis. T. angustipennis have a brown, patterned streak on each of their transparent hind wings, while T. sinensis have hind wings that are completely patterned and brown. The Chinese mantis is thicker or more stocky than the narrow-winged, mantis. It can be easy for a person to tell apart between the adults of these two species, Tenodera angustipennis and Tenodera sinensis when the two species are placed side by side.
