Hello. I found some pictures of yellow colored Orchid mantises. I asked a person from Indonesia that had yellow colored Orchid mantises about whether it was genetic or environmental that causes them to become yellow. He said it was genetic. He also said that the yellow color isn't rare with his Orchid mantids.
