Assessment of Distribution and Threats to Two Threatened Pheasants in the Brein Nishat Conservation Reserve, Kashmir, India

The Mantodea (Insecta) (Burmeister, 1838) is a well-studied insect due to its numerous outstanding traits. The quantity of oothecas laid by a female Mantis religiosa (Linnaeus, 1758) has not been documented, to the author’s knowledge. A collected female Mantis religiosa was bred in the laboratory of Hacettepe University, Faculty of Biology, Department of Forensic Entomology, Ankara, Turkey, during September and October 2019. The goal of this research is to estimate how many oothecas a female Mantis religiosa can lay. This female has given birth to four oothecas while in captivity. These oothecas’ offspring can be artificially selected to be reared as biological control agents when they develop.
