What would you find?

Recommended Posts

Hello all, so recently I was nosing about under some pots (like I usually do), and I found this:

Apologies for the poor quality, it was completely dark when I took the photos and the camera didn't have enough time to focus once the flash went off.

Anyway, just your regular Blatta lateralis. Pretty, but not very exciting. But that got me thinking. What species would you most like to find under a pot/log/stone? Say you are on a trip to somewhere, you flip over a log and bam! What species would you like to see? For me it'd be Blaberus/Eublaberus sp., or possibly some cool Panchlora sp.

Thanks,

Arthroverts

In terms of species that I could find under things, I'd have to say either "Quadrihormetica" onorei, Melyroidea magnifica, or some Zuluia... :D

Probably some odd, large Corydiid or Eurycotis pluto. 🙂

O.K, so what about not under things? What species would you want to find?

Thanks,

Pilema sp. females and nymphs in their burrows, hands down, my most wanted invertebrate... 😍

I found lots of wood roaches growing up.

A few years ago, I found pale bordered field roach in my yard. I was not able to contain it or find another. :(
