Thanks for the great site!
Guess I did know what a mantis egg case looked like. I had thought that was
what those were and then a couple of years ago someone said “Oh no, those
aren’t mantis egg cases those are xyz”. I remember as a kid being
told those egg casings were poisonous and not to touch. I wonder if that “child
care provider” (better known as a baby sitter) was trying to protect the
mantids from my prying fingers???
