Moved from Zelus.

Moved
Moved from Pselliopus.

I agree
Banding on the legs makes me think it may be in Pselliopus genus. But I am by no means an expert on these.

 
Yes you are:-)
LOL! I agree with Pselliopus. Slender individuals like this one can be confused with Zelus nymphs, but Zelus do not have lateral spines on the abdomen as nymphs.

 
Nymph
Can anyone explain how this nymph turned into Zelus while trapped in a peanut butter jar? :-)

 
Just now saw that response.
Well, dang, I guess I need to revisit some of the older images in the guide (sigh).

Looks to me
Like some sort of assassin bug nymph
