Chinese Mantid




The Chinese Mantid (Tenodera aridifolia sinensis) is one of the largest mantids and is widely distributed in the US due to the availability of commercially purchased egg-cases.
This mantid was introduced in the US from China in the 1890's to control pest insect populations.
These mantids grow up to five inches long and their coloration ranges from tan, green or a combination of the two.
