Mantis Religiosa (Dyctioptera, Mantidae) Infected by Wolbachia

For the first time, endosymbiotic bacteria of the genus Wolbachia were found to infect soothsayers, Mantis religiosa (Linnaeus, 1758). Mantises were collected at two locations in vicinity of Mykolaiv and Kaniv, Ukraine. Tested individuals were not infected by Cardinium and Spiroplasma.
