Recommended Posts

These cockroaches inhabits one greenhouse in Slovakia. Country of origin is maybe Nicaragua. Length up to 11 mm. I think it shoud be any Cariblatta. I would highly appreciate exact ID!

Thanks

The pronotum speckles look more like Cariblatta to me, but I am hard-pressed to find information about Central American species.

And has anybody contact to any person to ask directly for IDing and/or for photos of various Cariblatta species from a collection? The color pattern on the pronotum (I will have more secimens in my hands the next week) are absolutely constant...

Maybe you could contact George Beccaloni of the Blattodea Species File? I really don't know what to do otherwise.

I have two guesses: either it´s a Golden Roach or a Capraiellus panzeri (nymph).

Thanks, RaZias. Capraiellus panzeri looks very similar. Golden Roach is Cariblatta lutea?

Which picture you need for exact identification?

Sorry but I am not an insect specialist to identify them.

The third image seems similiar to the Capraiellus panzeri because I compared it with the image on the following link:

So, after long silence... These beast were identified as Cariblatta imitans! I found this species is native to Panama and Costa Rica. I would highly appreciate any papers with the data to this species. I suppose it is the first world introduction of the species outside its native range?

Thanks to all for all kinds of help
