Arizona mantispid - Dicromantispa sayi

Arizona mantispid - Dicromantispa sayi
Florida Canyon Station, Santa Rita Experimental Range, Pima County, Arizona, USA
July 25, 2013
Size: Head to wingtips: 20 mm
Usually mantispids stand at rest with their raptorial forelegs folded beneath their heads. But if you time things right, you can get pictures with their forelegs extended...showing the interesting spines, spurs, and articulations of those distinctive parts.

(See 1st image of series for more info on this post.)
