Cool find! I think this may actually be a mantis from genus Tenodera. Here is a link:

Stagmomantis carolina has a different body shape and doesn't sport those pretty green edges on the wings.

Check out the links and see what you think!

In the mean time, this would be a nice addition to the Marvelous Mantids of the World mission:
