  2. Parymenopus davisoni (Yellow Orchid Mantis) Introduction: Parymenopus davisoni is a rare species of flower mantis native to remote jungles in Malaysia, mainly Sunda island, Tapah hills and Perak. They are considerably smaller than Hymenopus coronatus, but have nearly the same care requirements. They grow to around 3" long at adult. In fact, some say that Parymenopus is even easier than Hymenopus. L1's are a lighter orange, to the point of orange-yellow, while Hymenopus are a darker orange-red. Defining differences that separate the two species include the steady thick yellow coloration in Parymenopus, while Hymenopus get much lighter, to the colors white and pink. There are many possibilities of colors forms of Parymenopus. There is plain yellow, thick yellow, pink and yellow, pink (mostly), green, light yellow (seeming white), and an orange rosy red color.(brancsikia339) These mantids have similar care to Hymenopus, actually nearly identical.(brancsikia339) There was original confusion of the real spelling of the scientific name Parymenopus davisoni. It was spelled Parhymenopus davisoni, Parymenopus davidsoni, Parahymenopus davidsonii, Parymenopus davisonii, and so on. These are incorrect.(brancsikia339) Currently I am unsure if these are still prospering in culture, I am sure some people still have them.(brancsikia339) Not for beginners but still amazing.(brancsikia339) Development: ...many requirements to make the molt right. High humidity and temps are a must have for this species.(brancsikia339) Rate of growth and factors involvedLongevity Molting observationsBehavior/temperament: Degree of activityDegree of aggression or timidityPropensity to cannibalizeDynamics of threat displayCaptive Environment: I kept my Hymenopus and Parymenopus at the same temperature and they both molted perfectly. I kept them at around 85 degrees Fahrenheit, misted daily...(brancsikia339) Type and size of enclosure(s) used.Substrate or lack thereofCage furnishings, e.g. molting surfaces, perches, décor, plants, etc.Communal housing if applicableFeeding: ...and fed exclusively on flying food (BB's, HF's, moths, butterflies and the occasional wasp).(brancsikia339) Breeding: Sexing/sexual dimorphism (explanation of physical differences and/or adult sizes of the sexes)Time needed from last molt to copulationTips: give us your methodology.Tips for inducing copulation and fecundityTips for inducing female to lay oothecaeOothecae: Physical description and average size. Picture desired; include with other pictures at bottom of Care Sheet.Diapause if necessaryIncubation time and temperatureObserved number/s and range of hatching nymphsOptional Health Issues: infections or illnesses encountered.Additional Observations: pertinent information which doesn't neatly fit anywhere else.Photos: up to five may be posted at the bottom of the completed template. Please limit these photos to no more than one of an ootheca, two of nymphs(different instars), one of an adult female, and one of an adult male.Ooth after drying (they don't look like this one.

    First time I handled her :)

    From the album: Aluine on a Cymbidium orchid

    It was so weird and stressing for both of us, she moves so fast, she's quite aggressive, tried to hit me a few times and tried to run into my hairs. Next time I'll wear a hijab...XD
