    Welcome! D. punctata are similar to hissers in care but it's hard to get much production. You'd probably never see 800 at once no matter how much work you put into it. It is a unique species. The D. punctata I have originally came from Roth, but maybe somebody else has something very similar.

    Welcome! The "punctata" have actually been confirmed to indeed not be that species last year by taxonomist Dominic Evangelista, but rather Diploptera cf. minor. With that out of the way, they like good ventilation with a mostly dry enclosure and hot temps. 🙂

    @Auz Nah this is a Blattid nymph, pretty sure it's just a dark Periplaneta fuliginosa nymph, they are pretty common in Georgia.

    August meeting is tomorrow! More info in the Google Group. I have also attached our club calendar that goes out to 2020. We are doing a velvet worm import from Canada right now, and after this one we are looking at doing another that may include some rare roaches. Stay tuned! Thanks, Arthroverts

    I found two logs full (out of about six logs I chose to look under) near Asheville, NC. I collected two adults and a number of nymphs. One of the adults was alone. The other adult was with some nymphs, but I think the nymphs were old enough to not need parental care. One of the adults One of the nymphs

    hi! i'm grey, roach/general arthropod enthusiast for 3 years. currently have a large colony of G. portentosa with 800+ individuals. someday i'd like to keep A. tesselata, B. craniifer, L. verrucosa, D. punctata, and P. saussurei. in addition to the roaches, i also have a few brown recluses (two adult females and some newborn slings), and might be getting a scorpion to fill the hissers' old tank. one question: does anyone have care info on D. punctata? that's the species i'm most interested in atm and i can't find much about them online (besides the whole milk thing). thanks in advance!

    thanks for the info everyone! wasn't aware they were renamed. yeah, i wasn't expecting to get a huge colony out of them, i know they have small litter sizes. i've got too many roach nymphs as it is

    Welcome to the forum! And yeah the D.punctata are now D. cf. minor, and like Joshua said they like things on the drier side, (but do like somewhat high air humidity I think).

    Yeah sadly it just looks like a fuliginosa nymph with atypical coloration, doesn't make it any less pretty though!

    Thanks @Auz and @Hisserdude! I was secretly hoping I had stumbled across something unique. The picture doesn't really do it justice as far as the colors. It's got some really pretty red tones in it as well.

    Is is possible it's a Hemiblabera tenebricosa? They're native to Florida so that isn't terribly far away. Although my knowledge on them and what their nymphs look like is virtually nonexistent lol

    Thank you for the information! I've always wondered about these cool accidental hitchhikers and if they are legal to keep... like folks who get spiders in their produce lol Realistically, I know it is highly unlikely anyone is going to come for a hobbyist in this type of situation, but I like to explore all the aspects of it.
