    Matthew Connors says

    Looking over my photos again, this one is not the common species. It's thinner and more orange, and importantly has an unmarked pronotum and a black spot on the forelegs. It matches what I can find on T. bokiana but I can't find any information on most of the other species

    Tenodera fasciata
    (species)
    Taxonomy: Animalia: Arthropoda: Insecta: Mantodea: Mantidae: Tenodera: fasciata
    Common Names: Mantids, Praying mantis
    Matthew Connors says

    Finally, a name! This is Tenodera blanchardi, still in the ALA and Bowerbird as T. fasciata blanchardi unfortunately. Had to dissect a male to be certain, but the genitalia are remarkably similar to T. bokiana for those interested. The greatest difference between the two is that the acutolobus is less 'club-shaped' in T. blanchardi than in T. bokiana
