Indian Flower Mantis
Creobroter gemmatus, common name Jeweled Flower Mantis or Indian Flower Mantis, is a species of praying mantis native to Asia and widespread in India....They prefer a humid environment and live about nine months in captivity.... Females are cannibalistic but males are fairly communal.....They are the smallest yet most widespread creobroter species. They make easy pets with proper care and it is said there is a 90% survival rate among nymphs...

Sir, Its NOT Creobroter. Its nymph of different species. Only adult would confirm species. There are two genera taht look alike and in both , male-female have different head str. So, wait till it mature...
