I consider myself a pretty competent armchair entomologist but this weekend I found something I have never seen (be it IRL or pictures) nor even heard about. Wondering if anyone might be able to give me a name on it.
AS I said in the topic line, I don't have any pictures I can post but the description speaks for itself:
Small, ~2cm long. Built and looks like a walking stick except the front pair of legs are held forward of the head and articulated like those of a praying mantis. Despite this articulation the front legs are not stocky like you see in mantids, they are however "spiked" like a mantid's.
Anyone have any guesses as to what this could be?
