Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Archimantis latistyla, commonly known as the large brown mantis (also known as the stick mantis or Australian mantis) is a species of mantid native to Australia. The large brown mantis has a few subspecies, and one of them is the stick mantis ghost from Bundabergs Turtle Sands. The stick mantis ghosts are not as aggressive as the original species but have a defense display used to make the mantis appear larger by flinging its front legs into the air and putting its head down along with its antennae. Large brown mantids are light brown with short winged female and a long winged male. The subspecies from Bundaberg is a pale cream white with a yellow and black eye in between the arms (one and a half times the size of the original species). The large brown mantis female is called "short winged"-the pair of wings reach only half her abdomen and she is not able to fly-but the long winged male has wings that cover the entire abdomen.show more
