Theopropus elegans (Banded Flower Mantis)
Theopropus elegans, common name banded flower mantis, is a species of praying mantis native to Southeast Asia.
They are green and white starting at their second instar and adults are similar in size and appearance to Creobroter species. Adult females are up to 5cm in length while males only grow to 3cm in length due to the sexual dimorphism common in mantises. Both sexes have green and white spots with bright orange hind wings and a large white transverse stripe on the fore wings.
