  1. Hey Rick,

    I love your little bug signature. How did you do that?



  2. You seem like a really cool person, but I just wanted to let you know that on mobile, your signature gave me a mini-heart attack XD

    S. limbata does not occur where you are. It looks like T. angustipennis.

    Finally Adult!

    Turn it over. Females have a wide abdomen with six segments and it ends in a downward point. Males have a thin abdomen ending in a "cup" shape structure that faces upwards. The abdomens of male and female adults look quite different. It is easy to tell at a glance.

    Finally Adult!

    Both sexes have full length wings on that species. All you should have to do with adults is take a glance at the abdomen. Females have a much larger "horn" on the head.
  7. At what point do we plan on editing the existing sheets to fall in line with the template? I also suggest we leave out any subjective information such as "this is a cool mantis", or "people keep this mantis because....."
  8. do u need some stagmomantis californica for your bugfest thing?
