Wing length and width measurement standards. Solid black lines indicate approximate location to take length and width measurements. Sphodromantis sp. A prepared specimen fore- and hindwing length B unprepared specimen forewing length. Note: in unprepared specimens, hindwing length and fore- and hindwing width is impossible to measure without first relaxing and re-mounting the specimen C prepared specimen fore- and hindwing width. Asterisks (*) represent potential areas where specimen damage (e.g., wing tip damage) may result in an inability to take an accurate measurement. Sectional sign (§) represents potential area where wing overlap can occur and either great care or re-mounting is needed to take wing width measurements. Black arrows indicate the pterostigma. Abbreviations: fw = forewing; hw = hindwing.
