  1. Let's see some beetles on here! Phileurus truncatus Phileurus valgus Hemiphileurus illatus
  2. P. lata nymphs. Thinking of giving some of them away.
  3. www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=605388942856558&l=4045395658426398174 bolliana nymphs
  4. Very cute roaches! It's interesting to see that this species has apterous females.
  5. I heard that black is a recessive trait so the offsprings will likely end up being all brown.
  6. Once my colony becomes big, I'll start selling some so you might be able to get them one day TBH I want these guys to infest my house so I can get tons of black germans. lol
  7. Sorry to hear that all of your cultures died out Hope u get tons of babies from your new roaches this year. I had significant portion of males emerge much earlier than females and would die before they get chance to mate with females, which emerged later. Perhaps that's what happened in your culture? Thinking of putting some subadult male nymphs into refrigerator to prevent this.
  8. One of my subadult male uhleriana is almost close to molt now. Hopefully, I'll be able to get a good pic of median segment from this guy and post some pics on here
  9. New born nymphs are super tiny so they might pass through pin holes.
  10. Blaberidae from Kenya in http://www.roachcrossing.com/smallfeederroaches.htm would be a great choice for you.
  11. I'll happily donate some pics of different species of Parcoblatta pics once my new males start to emerge (for better quality pics)
  12. Well...specimen in the picture is VERY misleading in appearance so I would either change the picture or remove it ASAP before you take the website down(to me, it looks like head is pretty solid black in color; black margin connecting gap between eyes. I even magnified the picture to look at it closely. In other picture where you have what appears to be P. lata shows golden coloration between the eyes). Keep in mind that color, though not always a good way for identification, can be very useful in differentiating some species since some color patterns are not found in other species.
  13. Perhaps you got virginica mixed in your lata colony and didn't notice?
  14. I'm pretty positive that P. lata in the pic is not P. lata but a P. virginica. It exhibits characters that are found in P. virginica but not in P. lata so its either misidentified or you accidentally placed the wrong picture in there (though I'm not sure about P. zebra since I've not seen them in person, but I doubt that they are red as nymphs).
  15. Forgot to mention that P. lata in your website doesn't seem to have white margins, which is another character of P. virginica.
  16. Oh and the reason why I doubt that the species you have listed as P. lata is not P. lata is that it has black head, which is a common color pattern in P. virginica. and reason why I don't think your P. zebra is P. zebra is because from what I've gathered, P. zebra resembles more of P. divisa and probably isn't red as nymph.
  17. Pics of P. lata Pair. Females and nymphs often have striking red and black bands across there abdomen. male. All the males I've observed (including some specimens preserved in Auburn University) had black abdomens, which might be a useful character for identification. Diagnostic charater for this species : ridges supplied with heavy tuft of hairs. This feature is shown on P. notha and caudelli as well as P. zebra (though location of the second pair of ridges is different in zebra), but this species can probably distinguished by the color of abdomen (apparently, P. notha and caudelli doesn't have black abdomen). There are other features to distinguish this species correctly but I don't want to get in detail.
  18. It appears that two of the Parcoblatta species in this website has been misidentified : http://www.angelfire.com/oh2/Roaches/ Specimen under P. lata appears to be P. virginica and specimen under P. zebra appears to be P. lata. Do you plan on changing the pics to correct species, Orin?
