Change of mind
Based on color pattern, location, and comparison with the holotype, I'm pretty convinced now that everything posted (so far) from Arizona is really D. arizonensis. Somewhere I saw specimens identical to yours identified as D. femorata, and that partly influenced my earlier identifications, but I think those were misidentified.

Moved from Northern Walkingstick.

Moved from Diapheromera.

Diapheromera
I can at least tell you it is in the genus Diapheromera. Only the claspers might indicate the species, and there are a fair number of them down there that I have not studied in detail.
