Saw this early in the morning in my front yard. I think it resembles the Stagmomantis carolina, but not exactly.
What is this wonderful insect? Four images.

Arizona Unicorn Mantis
Wow, thanks William! Mine really does look like this. I don't think I would have found this ID on my own.

Do you feel confident enough for me to move this?

 
No - please wait for another opinion

 
Unicorn Mantis
Yes, I found that after your comment and decided I'm not sure whether mine is a Mexican or an Arizona Unicorn.
Thanks again William.
