Assassin nymph - Rasahus

Assassin nymph - Rasahus
Sand Springs, Osage County, Oklahoma, USA

Size: 10mm (3/8")
I think this may be similar to and

Found under a rock.
Hopefully these shots are better and maybe the ID can be gotten further.
I know from past encounters with these that they are fairly quick and agile. So, when I turned the rock over it started making it's escape. I didn't have a container so I caught it in my hand and carried back to the house (a little over a quarter mile). I'm glad it didn't decide to stab me with that proboscis!

Please help with ID.

This is most likely Rasahus I would think, though I've never seen a nymph of Sirthenea....
