Stagmomantis is a remarkable genus within the Mantodea, being relatively species-rich and geographically widespread.  Yet, the number of species within the genus remains curiously unresolved.  The present synoptic review surveys the literature on Stagmomantis to identify named species for which scientific consensus exists, as well as to summarize basic biological information for each species, including geographic distribution, morphological features, and sex-specific biometric data.  The review… 

An elusive Neotropical giant, Hondurantemna chespiritoi gen. n. & sp. n. (Antemninae, Mantidae): a new lineage of mantises exhibiting an ontogenetic change in cryptic strategy

TLDR
The observed morphological changes between immature and adult females suggests that the selection for an alternate strategy for crypsis is a response to size increase of the abdomen during development.

NEW SPECIES RECORDS OF MANTODEA, ORTHOPTERA, AND PHASMATODEA IN THE STATE OF TEXAS (USA)

TLDR
19 species and subspecies records of Mantodea, Orthoptera, and Phasmatodea for the first time in Texas (USA) based on museum specimens are reported, including the first documentation of Melanoplus torridus and Phaedrotettix gracilis in the United States and the first records of the invasive cricket Velarifictorus micado in Texas.

Historic distribution and life history of the African twig mantid, Popa spurca (Mantodea: Deroplatyidae) in southern Africa

TLDR
The results suggested that the distribution of this genus seems to be largely associated with the Savanna biome in South Africa, and the average lifespan of a P. spurca individual was 332 ± 62 days adult longevity was significantly longer in females.

Contribution to the Knowledge of Mantids (Insecta, Mantodea) in Central Mexico: A Morphological and Molecular Approach

TLDR
This work provides new empirical evidence of geographical distribution of mantids in Central Mexico with specimens collected in the field, mounted, and identified using morphological and molecular characteristics.

Case 3705 — Mantis limbata Brullé, 1838 (currently Ameles limbata) (Mantodea, mantidae, amelinae): proposed conservation of the specific name

TLDR
It is proposed to suppress the replacement name Ameles canaria Koçak & Kemal, 2008, that has been suggested for the junior primary homonym, for the purposes of priority in order to avoid nomenclatural confusion within the subfamily amelinae.

Bird Predation By Praying Mantises: A Global Perspective

TLDR
It is suggested that praying mantises frequently prey on hummingbirds in gardens in North America; therefore, caution is suggested in use of large-sized mantids, particularly non-native mantid species, in gardens for insect pest control.

Primer registro de Stagmomantis limbata (Hahn) (Mantodea: Mantidae) para Chiapas, México

Stagmomantis limbata (Hahn, 1835) is reported for the first time in Chiapas, Mexico through photographic record.

INDEX TO THE MANTID OF NORTH AMERICA, NORTH OF MEXICO.

TLDR
The total number of species is fifteen or sixteen, and of genera, eleven, only three of the genera—Litaneutria, Stagmomantis, and Oligonyx—having more than one species; undoubtedly more forms will be found in the West and South.

STUDIES IN THE MANTIDAE AND PHASMIDAE OF PANAMA (ORTHOPTERA)

TLDR
Two hundred and eight Panamanian specimens are treated, two new genera and four new species being de scribed, in the Dermaptera and Orthoptera of Panama.

A NEW MANTIS OF THE GENUS STAGMATOPTERA FROM NICARAGUA

TLDR
Stagmatoptera typhon can be distinguished from the birivia type by the extremely short and broad wings and legmina, the more arcuate expansions and more compressed shaft of the pronotum, as well as the absence of distinct maculations on the tegmina.

The chromosomes of mantids (Orthoptera: manteidae) in relation to taxonomy

TLDR
Cytological evidence indicates a monophyletic origin of the compound sex chromosomes and necessitates a reconsideration of the taxonomic association of XO and X1X2Y forms in the same subfamily, specifically of Miomantis and Callimantis with the other Manteinae and Aethalocroa with Vates and Phyllovates in the Vatinae.

Checklist of the Neotropical mantids (Insecta,Dictyoptera, Mantodea)

TLDR
The order of Mantodea is a fascinating group of predatory insects that occupy various habitats and they play a vital role in the natural control of insect pests.

NOTES ON THE BIOLOGY OF STAGMOMANTIS CAROLINA. (ORTHOPTERA, MANTIDAE)

Podagrion Mantis Ashmead and Other Parasites of Praying Mantid Egg Cases (Hym.: Chalcidoidea; Dipt.: Chloropidae)

TLDR
Podagrion mantis was first described by Ashmead (1886) from Jacksonville, Florida, as having been reared from the egg cases of Mantis Carolina .

Life History and Population Characteristics of the Mantid Stagmomantis carolina (Mantodea: Mantidae)

TLDR
Investigation of the life history and populations characteristics of the Carolina mantid, Stagmomantis carolina (Johannson), in central Arkansas found that mortality was high during the egg stage because of developmental failure or egg parasitism, and Laboratory experiments indicated that this species has slower development during the Egg stage and slowerDevelopment during the nymph stages compared with related mantid species.
