It is probably not S. carolina in California, they are not found there. More likely either Stagmomantis californica or Stagmomantis limbata.

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?
