what is this part called?

Recommended Posts

hello! havent been as active on here due to my chronic illness taking a short turn for the worst. in a week or two will be the one year anniversary of getting my first hissers and im going to do a general update on all my roaches later on.

anyways, the point of this post was to ask this question: what is the part called that goes over their heads? that part of the exoskeleton that sort of sits over their heads like the bill of a baseball cap. on hissers its the part where their  lil 'horns' are. i refer to it lovingly as the helmet but i was wondering if there was an actual term for it. please feel free to ask me to clarify if my explanation doesn't make sense LOL

Dang, sorry to hear about your health. :( 

Anyway, the part of the anatomy you're talking about is the pronotum. :)
