Here are two pics of the new subadult female 'hiding' from me. She is about half a centimeter smaller than my previous one and much duller but she is still beautiful. :crazy:

Moulting pics... he fell halfway through so I had to hang him on a bramble thorn. His legs are bowed and all of his tarsi were eaten apart from one so he cannot climb or hang onto any surfaces.

Leaving for Paris for 3 days from today. Woke up at 3am to find my first ever Sphodromantis sp. with proper 'night-eyes'.

Came back today from holiday in France to find that the female had moulted to adult!
Whoo...
A bit gutted though as she turned out to be a pretty small individual. Around the same size as my previous subadult green female.

People often ask if the Sphodromantis they have is either S. viridis or S. lineola (Currently the two most common Sphodromantis spp. in culture here in the UK).

The most obvious difference is the number of white dots/spots that can be seen on the front/inside of their coxa... S. lineola have many small white dots while S. viridis on the other hand has 3 large, distinct spots as can be seen in this image by precarious333:
http://precarious333.deviantart.com/art/Sphodromantis-viridis-threat-pose-439285524

Another way to differentiate a S. viridis (left) from a S. lineola (right) is to look at the shape of their pronotum.
S. viridis' pronotum suddenly 'retracts' after the 'main shield' (no clue on the terminology here ) while it is much smoother up to the wings from the 'main shield' in S. lineola.

*I took the image of S. lineola from google BTW, then drew in the lines. I did NOT take the photo of the lineola*

My viridis:

The male unfortunately did not make it due to the injuries sustained after falling while moulting so I will be trying to source one in about 3-4 weeks time.

The female is getting on well and is now pretty fat with all the food. She measures 8.5cm (It looks like she is 9cm in the photo but she's not) from her head to the tip of her abdomen.

Record of how long it took for the male to moult inbetween each instar:
Pre-subadult ~ Subadult: 17 days
Subadult ~ Adult: 22 days

A member on the UK mantis forum offered me a male as a breeding loan and oh my, wasn't a he a feisty one! Connected in less than 5 mins after I first opened the box.

Mating log:
1st: 26-29days since her adult moult (roughly 4 weeks)

I put the female in the large aquarium with sticks as she looked like she was going to lay overnight. I woke up in the morning at 0600 to see this. 5 days since she was mated.

Ootheca log:
Ooth no.1: 31-34 days since her adult moult. (roughly 5 weeks)

The ooth had already hardened up so I removed it... While I was removing it, the male somehow managed to escape and sprint onto the female who was sitting on my desk lol. So that's mating session no.2.

Mating log:
1st: 26-29 days since her adult moult. (roughly 4 weeks)
2nd: 32-35 days since her adult moult. (roughly 5 weeks)
