Hi Patrick, neat find! This looks like a different species than Mantis religiosa. I am not sure which species this is at this time. It is most likely a native species.

This would be a perfect addition to the Marvelous Mantids of the World mission:

I have removed this from the Rare Color Morphs mission since it is not abnormally colored.
