Mantis Nymph - Zeugomantispa minuta

Mantis Nymph - Zeugomantispa minuta
Rustburg, Campbell County, Virginia, USA
September 3, 2019
Size: 1”
Flying mantis nymph found near front deck lattice. Brilliant yellow-green with brown lines along abdomen as shown in picture. About an inch long, with wings that were wider than its abdomen. Was able to fly from my hand to a nearby bush very gracefully, though not very fast. What kind of nymph is it? Thank you in advance for help identifying this emerald beauty!

Thank you for the fast identification!! I didn’t even know there was a separate classification for mantisflies! What an incredibly beautiful creature!
