            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???

Here's a page with a number of photos of mantis egg casings.  The ones I see here are brown and shaped like a football (American) flattened on one side.

Oh, pretty!!  Now, what I would like to see is a picture of their egg casings.  We have praying mantis all the time but I have never figured out what their egg casings look like.
