Asian mantis

Hierodula sp.


Adult mantis, entirely light green (soft and minty hue).


Found sitting on my trashcan (of similar color to the mantid); within gated property in a provincial area; subdivision about 2.3km from Dumaguete City; on a sunny, hot, and humid day, however, during rainy season.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
