  • Title
    Mantis indica Mukherjee, 1995: a synonym of Statilia nemoralis (Saussure, 1870) (Insecta: Mantodea)
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Mantis indica (Mukherjee, 1995) was erected on the basis of some distinctive characters. Based on morphological characters, it was supposed to belong to the genus Statilia (Roy (1999: 163). However, in the absence of the knowledge of the structure of genitalia, its species status remained confusing. A further study on the structure of genitalia revealed that Mantis indica (Mukherjee, 1995) is undoubtedly a synonym of Statilia nemoralis (Saussure, 1870). A table is provided to compare significant features of related species. Colour photographs of holotype and genitalia of comparable species are also provided.
