The species is Phyllocrania paradoxa amd it is sub adult.
It was supposed to be a female and it seems like she has her body split into 6 segments but the part at the end of their abdomen only females have does not seem to be present like it is with the other one the same size

Thanks all :)
I see now that she is the same as the other female lol (the other one was freshly molted when i was comparing them and her ovipositor was showing more clearly but now they look the same)

I'm not very good in sexing according to segments. Do you have a frontal picture to look at the antennae? Which instar is it?
