"Although a lot of flying insects are referred to as "flies" -- butterflies, dragonflies, mayflies, and so on -- the true flies belong to the Diptera. The name means "two wings," and true flies bear only one pair of functional wings."
"Members of this order of insects are found in almost all types of terrestrial and freshwater habitats across Australia with forests and the margins of water bodies having the greatest diversity of species."
"Mantids have elongate bodies that are specialized for a predatory lifestyle: long front legs with spines for catching and holding prey, a head that can turn from side to side, and cryptic coloration for hiding in foliage or flowers."
"Mantises are an order of insects that contains over 2,400 species"
