I was in the bug room one day in December, and a small nymph caught my eye. It was walking along the top of the net cage I was working on, and I captured it. To my surprise, it looked like a little Boxer mantis. It was true that I did have some Ephestiasula pictipes ooths sitting out waiting to be pinned into a cage... but I'd never witnessed any of them hatching, and it had been quite a while that they had lain there, so I thought they were infertile. I guess not! So I took some pics of this little girl. Since then, I've found another one but haven't taken pics to see what sex it is. Will have to do that soon.
