Abstract

Several surveys of mantid fauna from eastern Uttar Pradesh, India were carried out during the period 2017–2019.  The collected materials include 21 species of 17 genera from six families and nine subfamilies.  The Family Mantidae contributed the highest numbers of mantid fauna.  In total, 10 species of mantis are reported for the first time from the present Uttar Pradesh (after division of the state) while Tenodera costalis (Blanchard, 1853) is recorded for the first time from the country.
