That strange insect was found in Corsica near a house on 3rd September.
Can anyone help for ID please?
Thanks in advance,
This is a female European Dwarf Mantis, Ameles spallanzania.
It occurs across southern Europe and elsewhere, as green, brown or grey forms.

Many thanks, Mike! You have been so quick and complete!
I have just forwarded the question which was put to me by an English friend who is currently on holiday there.
She has been delighted getting your identification.
