Ejemplar de Mantispidae encontrado sobre una roca en los márgenes del río Tumuriaja, Parque Nacional Perijá, Zulia, Venezuela, durante una excursión del Laboratorio de Ecología Espacial junto con el personal de Inparques.
Se mantuvo durante un largo rato en el mismo sitio, y fue posible tomarle fotos desde varios ángulos antes de que se alejara volando.
