Spiny Flower Mantis (Pseudocreobotra wahlbergii). Praying Mantis, Mantodea (or mantises, mantes) The English common name for any species in the order is "praying mantis", because of the typical "prayer-like" posture with folded fore-limbs, although the eggcorn "preying mantis" is sometimes used in reference to their predatory habits.In Europe and other regions, the name "praying mantis" refers to only a single species, Mantis religiosa.Kelly Jacobs
