    Approved Common Names - American Cockroach Society

    That is disappointing, they look like they have the body structure for it.

    Approved Common Names - American Cockroach Society

    Thanks Hisserdude. Wouldn't Lanxoblatta be better off as bark mimic, rough bark doesn't do any justice to it's properties. Pseudoglomeris magnifica = Wouldn't Emerald pillbug roach be more descriptive? Is Thorax in the hobby? improcera means little I thing mega sounds like Megablocks or Megatron and giant is simpler. Comments ? Do you mean 115 for Paraplecta? I identified them to Paraplecta some years back but I forget which species.

    Approved Common Names - American Cockroach Society

    144. Panchlora sp. "speckled" = Speckled Banana Cockroach The common name list will be open to additions and suggestions for updates. The number and common name generally will not change, but scientific name changes and new species or subspecies can be added as they become established in culture. Suggestions will be incorporated (or not), then deleted. LOOKING FOR UPDATES- post below

    Isopod Hobby

    Can you provide the name of the book and the author, maybe include a quote from the text?

    Porcellio expansus

    Porcellio expansus has been the most sought after species for a while. They grow very large for a terrestrial isopod (many times the biggest most people see in their back yards) and older males have extremely long uropods. There are two different forms, one where the "skirt" (margin of the pronotum) is light orange and one where the skirt is yellow. Porcellio succinctus looks similar but the skirt is white.

    Isopod Hobby

    The original post asked when the "isopod hobby" started, not when the first human kept a wild isopod as a pet. I imagine that could have been ten thousand years ago, give or take all of history. There may be centurions alive today who kept an isopod when they were five. I believe I understood the question of the original poster but maybe your answer is the one requested.

    I Need Help/Advice, Dying Halloween Hissers

    The mites are slightly beneficial but you can remove them with some effort and patience.

    Simandoa Conserfariam behaving weird

    The problem with hanging up near the lid is you can smash one on accident during routine care.

    Rotting wood

    This depends on exactly what you're feeding it to. Many roaches will eat the most rotten parts but cannot eat anything that isn't well decayed.

    Suggest me a species!

    I'm going to vote for glowspots.

    Dying hisser. Is there anything else I can do?

    How long had she been an adult? Any reason to think she didn't die of old age?
  13. Allpet Roaches

    Introducing myself

    Welcome aboard!!
  14. Allpet Roaches

    Howdy yall!

    I suggest E. chopardi, they usually reproduce much quicker than javanica

    Specific roach species that tend to smell?

    Some of the gyna colonies smell like sugary flowers.
  16. Thanks to a number of members we now have a pretty cool book on keeping pet cockroaches of the size (coffee table) and quality (hardcover and color pics) these fantastic pets deserve. https://www.amazon.com/Love-Cockroaches-Husbandry-Biology-Blattodea/dp/1616463368 Thanks!!

    Spirostreptus sp. Hybridization Possibility?

    What is "green fairy tail"? I don't think you'd have much to worry about since the unidentified "Spirostreptus" often available are probably not that closely related and may simply be spirostreptids from a different genus.

    Simandoa Conserfariam - please help me

    I would guess the females live about 18 months after reaching maturity and the males a little less.

    Introducing new hissers to an existing colony

    If the males fight it wont matter how long they have to get used to each other first. Usually the fights are harmless.

    Polyphaga saussurei nymphs moving synchronous

    That is a great species.
  21. Allpet Roaches

    ID help needed

    Looks more like a discoid, fusca are more elongated.

    Hey From NY!

    Welcome! Hopefully you can expand out that roach list!

    Mysterious Blaberus Colosseus Nymph Death

    Sometimes one dies for no reason. If the other one dies then it is something about the current setup.
  24. Articles primarily on husbandry for various invertebrates are needed for future issues. Articles on tarantulas, centipedes, and scorpions are especially needed. Share your successes!! Unlike most journals there is no cost to publish and free copies or subscriptions are provided to authors who provide accepted articles. In addition to invertebrate husbandry, articles have included invertebrate biology, venoms, field collecting, enclosure design, etc.
