Twelve types of wind-sensitive neurone have been identified in the terminal ganglion of the mantids, Archimantis sobrina and A. latistylus (Fig. 1). Nine have conspicuously larger axons than the others in the connective of the ventral nerve cor...

When juvenile praying mantids (Tenodera sinensis [T. aridifolia sinensis]) were exposed to unpalatable prey (Oncopeltus fasciatus), they attacked, sampled and then usually rejected the prey. About 70% of the handling time was spent feeding. When o...

Studies in the laboratory in Illinois showed that after attacking and consuming 4th-instar nymphs of Oncopeltus fasciatus (Dall.) that had been reared on seeds of milkweed (Asclepias syriaca), 6th-instar nymphs of the mantid Tenodera aridifolia si...

Mice depredated less than...
