Caption

Mantidfly. View of a mantidfly (family: Mantispidae) on a leaf. Mantidflies are insects which resemble, but are not related to, the praying mantids. Their front limbs are modified into a pair of grasping implements used to hold prey animals, usually smaller insects. Mantidfly larvae are parasitic on the egg-sacs of spiders. They mainly live in warm areas. Photographed at Los Banos, in the Philippines.
