Hierodula tenuidentata / Confidently identified / Mihail Nyzhnikov Hierodula transcaucasica / Tentatively identified / Anatoliy Kuzmin.

In general, distinguishing these two species by photographs is shamanism. According to the theory of probability, given that transcaucasica has considerably expanded its range in the European part of the Russian Federation in recent years and has become almost massive in the Astrakhan region, it is rather transcaucasica. I would transfer to transcaucasica with an "tentative identification" mark.

That's really it, I look in the book — and I see nothing :--) I checked three times, and I remained in the opinion that Hierodula tenuidentata as identification at the iNat too.
Mikhail, Evgeny. No objection to transferring to Hierodula transcaucasica?

I see it as Hierodula transcaucasica, and not as Hierodula tenuidentata. I'm sorry ))

Anatoly, there is no mistake here. Your link also has Hierodula tenuidentata, and it's here too (but initially when you uploaded it, you specified Mantis religiosa).

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/147609166 There's probably a mistake somewhere. There or here?

Mantis religiosa / Anatoliy Kuzmin Hierodula tenuidentata / Mihail Nyzhnikov.

I agree with Mikhail. This is tenuidentata.

01.10.2023 17:07, Peter Khramov

Anatoliy, do you agree?

It's Hierodula tenuidentata
