Thanks, but the larger images aren't loading when I click the thumbnails:

I've seen a lot of ooths in my house and im not so sure what ooths they are. If I see another one i'll try to get a pic and I live in Malaysia by the way (If that helps in any way to identify the ooth). These ooths are really, really common around Malaysia. (Well at least where I live) The ooths are also very small.

This guide is cool too.

But some temperatures are a bit too warm, and with Gongylus it should be a little bit more humid, or else them nymphs will pop out with bent necks.

And if I understand, Brunneria borealis ooths need a 8-10 weeks diapause.

Here's a photo of a few ooths I keep for size comparison. From left to right its Tenodera angustipennis (narrow winged mantis), Gongylus gongylodes (violin), Tenodera aridifolia sinensis (Chinese), and Rhombodera stalii (Indonesian shield):

Hi peeps! I was browsing this thread hoping to ID some ooths that I bought but ran into some trouble with the links.

http://www.mantopia.dk/ootheca.htm appears to be an expired site, has this site moved or does anyone know if the owner discontinued the site?

Also http://insectstore.com/praying-mantis-ootheca-identification-guide seems to have broken images so I was unable to use it as a resource.

Does anyone have some other web resources to share?
Here ya go!
