A very young nymph. Haven't sorted out how to tell the species of nymphs apart yet, but there are only one or two likely species in your area - S. furcata, and perhaps more likely S. mexicana. I'm not certain if any closely related genera in your area might have similar looking young nymphs, but I'm not aware of any that do.
