Found in my yard among the canna and bearded iris.
It is probably not S. carolina in California, they are not found there. More likely either Stagmomantis californica or Stagmomantis limbata.https://bugguide.net/node/view/7985https://bugguide.net/node/view/149885
It has to be a nymph. It seems to be flightless.
I'm not really sure it could be Stagmomantis limbata or Stagmomantis carolina
Wonderful spotting Valerie! ornithoptera80 -- I was leaning towards Stagmomantis limbata -- Did you look at this possibility?
