Praying Mantis



I was getting my daughter ready for school one morning at the house we are renting in Nayarit, Mexico when we all noticed something 'fly' across the room. I looked at our dining table, and there was this creature, which I recognized. It was much larger than any I had seen before, and spent the morning on our table until we helped it outside. Needless to say, the kids were extremely excited by our guest!

I wonder if this is a Phasmomantis (Tauromantis).
