Bug Nymph on Mesquite - Zelus tetracanthus

Bug Nymph on Mesquite - Zelus tetracanthus
San Pedro River Valley, SE of San Manuel, Pinal County, Arizona, USA
May 5, 2014
Size: approx 5-6mm
Found on the branches of a Velvet Mesquite Tree (Prosopsis velutina); I would guess to some sort of assassin bug. I've never seen this type before. Thank you for your help.

Thank you Yurika
it looks the same. When I first saw it I thought of Zelus renardii because of the shape and traces of red around the abdomen; now I would guess Z. tetracanthus - very close to . Thanks for your help.

Not an ID but...
Looks similar to this Margarethe's nymph from AZ...
