Ermanno Giglio-Tos (1865-1926)
Giglio-Tos was an Italian entomologist born at Chiaverano, Turin, Italy. He studied at the University of Turin from 1886-1896 and later he was a professor at the University of Cagliari. He specialised in Diptera, Mantodea, Phasmatodea, Orthoptera and Blattodea. He described many new species of mantids and is the author of what still remains the only comprehensive book for identifying mantids, although it was not published until the year after he died (Giglio-Tos, 1927).
