"Where are all these baby praying mantids coming from?!", "Oh, the Christmas tree..."
Ah! That had not occurred to me. Thanks for the input and the enlightenment. :)
Thanks for adding it! I was actually looking at the egg case when I made the suggestion. Chinese Mantids have a particular shape to their oothecae. If you look at the pictures on the link there are several images of egg cases for that species.
Added to you mission. Thanks for the id. I'm not sure if I can possibly positively identify them though by the image and because they were newly hatched.
Who would have guessed? Hah! Possibly Chinese Mantids, Tenodera aridifolia sinensis http://bugguide.net/node/view/10098I would love to see this added to the Marvelous Mantids of the North East mission:http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1573...
yes, that is the egg.
Is that the egg in the first and second photo ?
