    Hmmmmmmm, looking at it again I think it may well be Pseudomantis... I think the weird angle of the eyes in the first picture just threw me off! The rest of the body is definitely not too much like Archimantis at any rate

    Matthew...I had no idea! I will try to catch any that turn up in the future and raise them to adulthood.

    I'm leaning towards Pseudomantis due to the wide flat shape of the abdomen and the patterns present on the abdomen are similar to some examples I have seen from the NT. Without an adult specimen a proper determination will be very difficult

    Wow! I'd bet Archimantis, but not one of the common species. Hopefully someone else will be able to provide more insight
