Hymenopus Stercorarius, commonly known as dung mantis, is a species of hymenopodidae mantis. Native of the tropical asian forests it has evolved to the point of resembling incredibly a particular orchid, Bulbophyllum Faecarius, which grows on elephants' excrements, in order to escape predation. It is the only coprophagous member in the order of Mantodea.
