Roach ID from Sweden (indoor env)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I wonder if anyone knows the ID of this roach found indoors in an apartment in central Sweden. I'll apologize for the rather misleading picture but that is what I recieved from our technician in the field.

Cheers/thomas

I can not ID them, but they look really cool!

It looks too flat for Periplaneta, I would have to guess Pycnoscelus sp. But I dont think they live in Sweden.. Maybe in a house plant?

The adult looks almost like P. Fulinginosa, but the body is too round and I don't think that species would do well in Sweden.

The pronum has some pattern on it, if we could get a closer view of that it might help.
