Cilnia humeralis (Wide-armed Mantis) for sale

Cilnia humeralis….common name wide-armed mantis, is an aggressive and very cannibalistic species of praying mantis from Africa.

A very “stocky” mantis, with the female having wings that only reach halfway down her abdomen, this is a very active, but delightful species to keep in the hobby.
