Description

One of only 2 species of Mantodea recorded in Fiji (Evenhuis 2007). This individual took up residence alongside a green pepper plant with a hole in the side. It was present for at least 10 days, moving down into the pot during windy weather and back up the pepper plant in calmer conditions. I never saw it capture anything - but presume it used the damaged fruit as a 'lure'.
