Description of specimen

Mantis religiosa- European Mantis, male. It flew into the side of my truck and I have it in captivity now.


Eric, without a picture, it will be nearly impossible to identify the mantis. Oregon does have a native mantis (California mantis) as well as the well-established Chinese mantis. Neither are considered pests. Thanks for using the Hotline!
