Flower mantis (Creobroter elongate) eating butterfly, Kaeng Krachan National Park, Thailand

Creobroter or flower mantises is a genus of mantis concentrated in Western Asia. The name comes from the Greek "kreas" (combining form "kreo", meaning "flesh"), and "broter" (eating); therefore, "flesh-eating", an apt name for a predatory insect.
