Thanks, I did change a name on this spotting.
And found in Greece, too.http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/365...
Ooh, it looks like a Sphodromantis viridis. Certainly not Mantis religiosa.The Sphodromantis viridis I think is introduced to Italy and Spain and Portugal:http://www.entomologiitaliani.net/public...http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/596...http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles...
This would be a nice addition to the global Mantis mission: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1573...
This is a beautiful mantis! However, I do believe this is not a European Mantis. The body shape and patterning on the wings are not consistent. More likely this is either a Sphodromantis or Hierodula species. Unfortunately, I am not familiar with the species found in your area. Perhaps you can find some local resources that have more information.
