Ghost Mantis Male


Out of stock


This listing is for a ghost mantis MALE, for those trying to breed their females. Sold as about 5th or so instar (has shed about 4 times), and is currently feeding on house flies.

Phyllocrania paradoxa, a scientific name almost as cool as their worldwide common name “ghost mantis”. These are really a kind of flower mantis disguised as a dead leaf mantis. If that isn’t confusing enough, they blend all the traits of all other popular hobby mantises with their flanged legs, wide shield-like pronotum (behind their heads), crowned/crested heads, leafy flanging on either side of the abdomen and cryptic, dead leaf coloration. Individuals are usually a medium brown color, though green and dark brown specimens are not uncommon. They don’t differentiate in coloration until they approach maturity.

They are renowned for being one of the only mantises that can be kept communally with little risk of cannibalization.
