Abstract:

The present experiment was conducted to study the Praying mantids (Mantodea) in Campus of N. M. College of Agriculture, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari (Gujarat) India, in relation to their morphological characteristics (Morphometrics of forewing, hind wing and abdomen), at Department of Agricultural Entomology, N. M. College of Agriculture, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari (Gujarat) India, during 2016-17. Total 21 species of mantids belongs to 15 genera, from five families were recorded from different localities. Among 21 species of mantids Aethalochroa ashmoliana Westwood (Family: Toxoderidae) was the largest in relation to size of forewing (50.13±0.20mm), hind wing (50.60±0.36mm) and Schizocephala bicornis Linnaeus (Family: Mantidae) was the largest in relation to size of abdomen (82.50±0.52mm), while TripiodoguttatipennisStal (Family: Hymenopodidae) was the smallest in size with measurement of forewing (20.07±0.07mm), hind wing (20.84±0.73mm) and abdomen (22.13±0.06).
