The Chinese mantis is a species of praying mantis native to China and other parts of Asia and islands of islands off of mainland Asia. At around 1896 this species was accidentally introduced by a nurseryman at Mt. Airy near Philadelphia, PA. ''Tenodera sinensis'' often is erroneously referred to as ''Tenodera aridifolia sinensis'' because it was at first described as a subspecies of ''Tenodera aridifolia'', but ''Tenodera sinensis'' is now established as a full species.
