Dicromantispa interrupta (Mantisfly (nonspec.)).
| A pretty bizarre insect. This is a Mantisfly (Dicromantispa interrupta). The species has a characteristic, interrupted dark patch on the border of its forewings. Mantisflies resemble lacewings, have raptorial forelegs, and a neck-like elongated prothorax. Their head is triangular with large eyes. The small photos were taken in September of 2011. |
