    1. Thank u. I still don't understand why they call this mantis as the Malaysian Orchid Mantis?? Indonesia is much bigger n wider than Malaysia, this mantis can be found everywhere in Indonesia. Posted 2 years ago
      1. Good point. It looks like this species has several common names: ''walking flower mantis'' and '' orchid mantis''. Posted 2 years ago
        1. The common name in Indonesia is Belalang Anggrek or Orchid Mantis.
