Do you have a adult male Limbata mantis?????

Great pictures! The blue upper lip and yellow checkered wings are consistent with Stagmomantis limbata, a native species. :-)

I especially like the second image. You might want to move that one to the first position since it shows the details of this mantis so clearly.

Please consider adding this nice spotting to the Marvelous Mantids of the World mission:
