I had already posted pictures of Praying Mantis earlier – Sept 2016. Here you have another two types…believe it or not, from my garden!
Indian flower mantis or Jeweled mantis (Creoboter meleagris) is characterized by bright green wings that have a slight yellow tint on the side. In the center of the wing, there is a white ‘eye’ patch, which has a black edging around it.
Indian bark mantis (Humbertiella ceylonica) is highly camouflaged to suit the bark texture. I clicked this on a flowering herb though. This bug, I identified from Project Noah.
