Odontomantis planiceps, commonly known as the Asian ant mantis, is a small mantis that has been sighted in a number of locations in Singapore.  Despite being so widespread, there are no publications on this particular species, and reliable information on their morphology, behaviour and phylogeny is unclear. 

These mantids seem to be able to thrive in highly disturbed environments and conserved areas.  They can be considered as one of the more urban species, which are more mobile and can be found in areas with very little vegetation.
