Notes This mantidfly appears to be a female and was found near a house with many spider webs under the eves, which may be significant because mantidfly larvae are spider parasites. The house is adjacent to Kalamalka Provincial Park near Jade Bay in the Interior Douglas Fir biogeoclimatic zone. ID verification by Rob Cannings.
