*Mantis hyalina* Fabricius, 1775. Un poss syntype

This specimen is from William Hunter's collection. The specimens were utilised by Fabricius describing new species. The collection contains types from other contemporary entomologists such as Olivier and Drury.

There are other similar specimens in the same drawer that might be other mis-placed syntype as there were two originally according to the Trustees' Catalogue.
