  1. The diference between the "black and white" and the "tricolor" form is mainly the color on the thorax: the vestigal wings are brown/red on tricolor, darker, on the black and white. The shape of the stripes are also a bit diferent... But there are still variations in each strain.
  2. I'd say they were about the size of Therea regularis. Both sex were smaller. There were several specimens, all were about the same size
  3. Morphna yes, but I wouldn't be sure about the species... A lot of Morphna are really close in appearance
  4. A few news: I visited the Paris Museum's collection and compared T. petiveriana (from the museum) to my T. berhardti. Sizes are VERY different, no exception. T. petiveriana is way smaller than what we keep!
  5. Hello, I guess it's possible, but they are not the best feeders... Slow growers, it will require a lot of space to breed them if you want to constantly have preys for your animals. They are good producers (I have a colony of 600-1000 of them), but the colony is big due to the fact I keep most of them...
  6. It has been identified as Paraplecta minutissima.
  7. I was planning to share it here and on a few facebook groups in a few days... That's a good thing it's already done! Thanks for sharing As a piece of information, other roaches might be identified in the near future. I'll post an update about it as soon as I have some news!
  8. very soft plastic may prevent evasion from a short amount of time, but when it gets older, little scratches appears on it and roaches are able to climb (event some non climbing species )
  9. "potato camera"... love the expression
  10. thanks a lot! Do you breed them in the cup I can see on the pictures?
  11. How do you exactly keep them? I've tried to breed them but it failed :/
  12. As far as they can I think
  13. Eublaberus are known to be aggressive to other inverts, I wouldn't be surprised if they kill and eat is isopods, I have isopods in lost if my copies but not in Eublaberus...
  14. Just an update: You can find a good list here, everybody should participate to complete it
  15. Hey, Just digging up this (very!!!) interesant topic... Orin, I heard you find out they were Paraplecta sp., is it sure? Do you also know the species? I hope to see more roaches identified in the future, that's a shame we have so much species waiting for an ID
