Lichen Mantises is considered a protostome.

-Description:
This is a lichen mantises and it was found on a bridge near a River. It was a very small insect with antennas and long legs. Mantid, (family Mantidae), also called mantis, praying mantid, or praying mantis, any of approximately 2,000 species of large, slow-moving insects that are characterized by front legs with enlarged femurs (upper portion) that have a groove lined with spines into which the tibia (lower portion) presses. Using their spined front legs, mantids, which feed exclusively on living insects, seize prey in a viselike grip. Usually found among vegetation rather than on the ground, a mantid may be disguised to resemble green or brown foliage, a dried leaf, a slender twig, a lichen, a brightly coloured flower, or an ant. This camouflage hides it from predators and also makes it inconspicuous as it stalks or awaits victims. The female, which often eats the male during mating, lays about 200 eggs in a large cocoonlike capsule (ootheca), which serves to protect the eggs from adverse weather conditions and enemies.

Light green fern with about 16-18 pinnae on each blade. The small leaflet structures, or pinnules, are light green and rounded. The ends of some pinnae are curled up. Based off of these characteristics, it can be identified as a Swamp Shield-Fern. The stipe was dark green in color.
This plant was found in a nature preserve where it was surrounded by other ferns. They are typically found in terrestrial areas, wet marshes, or along streams and rivers.
