Peruvian Shield Mantis

Choeradodis Rhombicollis

Notes:

Was staying with a friend at Mar Y Selva in Ballena, Costa Rica an I had some cool Brazilian music playing on my computer while I cooked for us. I think this little Leaf Mantis enjoyed the music so much it wanted to get as close as he could. He is so cute!

Pretty sure it's a Peruvian Shield Mantis, the Wikipedia picture is not entirely accurate however, as the spots on the "shield" vary. Anyhow, the two spots on the abdomen kind of point towards a Peruvian to me.
