Nice find! This looks more like a nymph from genus Tenodera (very likely a Chinese Mantis but I can't confirm without seeing the color between the front legs on the body. Mantis religiosa has purple or reddish femora on the hind two pair of legs and an eyespot on the inside of the front raptorial arms. http://bugguide.net/node/view/10098
