A discussion about what this species is on the UKMantisForums:

XMP wrote:
They sell their mantids as Prohierodula cf. ornatipennis (Togo)

Judging by your pictures it might not be picta since I have these and they look differently, I also have Prohierodula laticollis, that looks suspiciously similar.

Thanks XMP.

On their website a week ago, they were selling them as {Prohierodula sp. (picta?) (Togo)} which is the reason why I put in "Prohierodula sp. (picta?) in the OP.

I agree, they do look similar to P. laticollis so I'm excited to see what they turn out as.

Hi,

They are really beautiful :-)
They look like laticollis specie that's right.

Best regards

Hi. I have just reared P laticollis and they look identical to those in the photos

Cheers.

My moneys on laticollis for sure, colourful little buggers.

As far as I know the Prohierodula genus is not that big, three known species that have been found in the hobby:
Prohierodula picta (most bred species)
Prohierodula laticollis (recently introduced and starting to become popular)
Prohierodula flavipennis (Imported once but never been bred)

There are more species, and they all resemble each other a bit. I have museum specimen references for these species so if you have adults and they turn out to be something different than laticollis, then I will be more than happy to look it up for you!

Greetings

Turns out laticollis and ornatipennis are synonyms, so it is the same species. Voila, mystery solved.


Hooray! Mystery solved. :) I'll label them as- Prohierodula cf. laticollis "Togo".
