 I cannot believe how huge these are! This guy is bigger than my Eublaberus  “pantanal” and my Blaberus fusca.

I received 6 in December from Orin. I think the largest was maybe 1.5 inches. I’d say that guy is 3 inches.

I finally have my first adult. It’s really dark on the wings.

Congrats! They're so impressive, right? :) 

Darker wing coloration seems to be directly related to nymphs maturing in colder temps, if you were wondering. ?

Yep, I've observed this occurance in Parcoblatta pennsylvanica and I bet the same could be true for some other winged roaches as well. :) 

Hmm, just slightly on the cooler side then. Exactly how dark is your adult? I kept mine a bit colder than that (at the time the warmest things got were around 70 F I believe) and my adults were nearly solid black so I assume yours might be a bit lighter in color?

Now that I'm keeping mine on the warmer side, I'm not seeing any black or even mostly black adults.
