A rare species of praying mantis has been found in Serpa in the central Alentejo region of Portugal.

The Centre for the Conservation of Butterflies of Portugal announced the discovery of the rare mantis, which is protected by law. The researchers found the species on a farm in Serpa and fear that it will not withstand the pesticides applied in this region. This animal “is threatened by the reduction of typically Mediterranean ecosystems” and excessive production puts “the survival of this species at risk”, the centre said.
