asynchronous hatch
vulnerable small mantids
few reserves remain

Harris, S., and M. Moran. 2000. Life History and Population Characteristics of the Mantid Stagmomantis carolina (Mantodea: Mantidae). Environmental Entomology 29(1):64-68.

The Carolina mantis has a very slow development time, which puts it at high risk for starvation, predation, cannibalism, and all sorts of goodies. But the authors speculate that this is because a faster-developing mantid would be ill-timed to survive the winter (at least in Arkansas, where the study took place).
