Orthodera novaezealandiae (New Zealand Mantis)

Orthodera novaezealandiae, known as the New Zealand praying mantis, is a species of praying mantis which is indigenous to New Zealand.

O. novaezealandiae nymphs are pale, translucent green with a dark stripe running from head to end of abdomen. As adults, they are bright green and grow to between 35-40mm in length. Sexual dimorphism means the female is larger. It has a triangular head with slightly oversized compound eyes. Its wings differ from those of other species in the “development of the archedictyon and the absence of cross-veins in the forewing”.
