  1. Brilliant, the stranger, the better! One of our member maintains a list of weird species, I hope she adds this one to it :) Posted 6 years ago
  2. Empusa pennata is a western Mediterranean species. It is not likely to be found in Burkina Faso unless maybe as an imported pet. A similar species found in Burkina Faso is Empusa guttula. However, we cannot compare the genitalia to be sure.

    1. Agreed, not sure if this is Empusa pennata, too... probably isn't. Posted 6 years ago
  3. Modified...just have to check on my other pics to be able to identify it accordingly with the clues. Posted 6 years ago
