Found the trapdoor and some webbing hanging out of the burrow. When I attempted to pull it out, I was surprised to find a cocoon! (I also found it notable that on the lower part of the cocoon, there are holes, could this be an instance of parasitoid on parasitoid?)

Prosternal spines visible on ventral shot, sort of like a necklace with two spines pointing posteriorly. Keys to Neduba in Rentz and Birchim, 1968, in which I believe they include Aglaothorax.

Description

Was watching this mantis hunt for honey bees on California Buckeye. She ignored the native bees. After several misses, she caught one, and was bombarded by 2-3 other honeybees for about 20 seconds before they gave up. While finishing off her honey bee, the mantis is grabbed by a female Western Fence Lizard that leaped vertically 9" into the air (I measured later). They land on the ground in a confused heap six inches from my foot, with the lizard on top and the mantis grabbing on to it. Everyone freezes, especially me, since I don't want this battle to go up my pants leg. I move into a better position, and after a while the lizard gets off the mantis and there's a long standoff where they stare each other down from about 6" apart. Finally, the lizard grabs some other small insect (ant?) from the ground and scuttles away under the buckwheat. With the coast now clear, the mantis hustles back up into the buckwheat. The End.
