Praying Mantis (egg case)

Tenodera sinensis sinensis


Looks like Styrofoam attached to a branch. Juveniles had already left the case.


Attached about 4 feet up on a dogwood stem, pondside.


I might argue that based on variability of egg cases and no adults in the area, that given the location, this is Mantis religiosa.
