  1. Sundablatta sexpunctata (Hanitsch, 1923) Can be find in S. Peninsula Malaysia, Singapore to Sumatra. This is the other species collected from E. Malaysia http://www.roachforum.com/index.php?showtopic=2291
  2. Yes, they are metallic green-blue colour. I only keep one species, others are dry specimences.
  3. Yes, they are always found in pair. Where is the partner? oh... I think both of them are living with me now...
  4. Sundablatta pulcherrima (Shelford, 1906) An active roach from Sabah, Borneo. Alway in pair on the surface of rotten wood.
  5. Here are my Eucorydia collections in China this year. How wonderful they are!!
  6. Actually, Panesthia and Salganea are very easy to keep. Rotten wood + hypha of mushroom is the Main course plus a little bit apple and dog food once two week is useful. Soft Rotten wood is better than harder one.
  7. How about Dorylaea flavicincta de Haan, 1842 from Taiwan?
  8. Always have bad impression in Indonesian region... especially the immigration and some local people.. So I prefer to travel alone in Malaysia and Thailand~ SE. Asia is quite easy to go for me~ U just need to make ur date, and txt me~~ I always make the anniversary schedule in the end of last year. So, please inform me earlier. I think it would be nice to travel with u. But my english is very bad, just like the first year we met on intenet~~ haha
  9. That`s male Catara rugosicollis (Brunner von Wattenwyl, 1865) Actually, this time, I saw both C. r. and C. minor Krauss, 1902, but the later one is too active, and fly away before I took picture. The females just mimic Tenebrionidae. both form and smell, very intresting. Purpose~~ roaches, phasmids, and mantids.. but it`s too bad for the rain season... So I will visit again in Oct. Wanna join me? Kinabalu is in Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia~~ not China. Don`t worry, haha
  10. Max. single upload size: 3.87K It`s quite difficult to post anything.... C other pics link to here http://bbs.nature-china.net/viewthread.php...;extra=page%3D1
  11. Just back from Kinabalu N.P., Sabah, Borneo. Raining causes very bad harvests~~ It`s not good to visit in rain season, even it`s a tropical area~~
  12. Just back from China. A nice trip for roaches I don`t keep Megacrania at present, they are terrible big eaters... and I put more attention on roaches now.
  13. I am always in the hobby, just change different target in different time~~ Like these two cute guys I collected from Malaysia Actually, now I spend more life to travel in Asia for collecting. Sometimes I am disappear on internet for a long time. This is the album with some pic of my travel in 2007 http://yamai.pixnet.net/album Always welcome u to join with me~~ My spot is on the species of Panesthiinae with "Giant Horn" and ornamental colour~~ I will travel for them in next year, including S. India. (I guess u know which I am looking for~~ Euthyrrhapha pacifica (Coquebert, 1804) looks so cute, I think it`s a good reason to visit Hawaii. and... the markets sell bugs for food is in Thailand~~ not in Taiwan~~ I do like them very much~~ especially the Salad with ant~
  14. Dear Juraij That`s impossible, because I don`t have enough space to keep them~~ haha, but it`s really my dream. In the next year, I will put all my attention on Taiwan , Mainland China, and S.E. Asia. Wish someday we will meet in Malaysia~
  15. Beetle Yamai??? Oh~~ I guess these two are myself~~ hahaha and the Beetle-Yamai is quite long long long time ago~~ how can u remember it~! Long time no see, my old friend. I like to rear many different things, so maybe next time, I will use mix-Yamai~ btw.. ur personal picture is Holocompsa sp.? looks so cute
  16. This database is useful to find the list u want. http://blattodea.speciesfile.org/Common/ba...TaxonNameID=518
  17. Don`t need to envy, I just collect the wild roaches from my hometown. Since there are around 70-100 spec. in Taiwan, my collection is just a tiny start. The spec. in USA and Whole America are intresting for me, I envy u too~~~
  18. Panesthia angustipennis cognata (Bey-Bienko, 1969) Nymph of P. a. brevipennis Brunner, was described by Roth in 1979 as: "reddish bown without any markings on the meso- and metanotum which may be darker in the lateral portions.."
  19. will go for a travel for 2 weeks, and don`t have enough time to take photos. Which one u would like to see first? The attachment is part of my room.
  20. Yamai, a new roach hobbyist from Taiwan. (not Thailand, or Japan!!) Have about 70 species of roaches, most of them are native in Taiwan and Mainland China, and also pet roaches.

  21. This is actually a Mainland China species, and very closeed to Eupolyphaga sinensis (Walker, 1868), a very common culture species for medicine. This colony may be introduced from Taiwan to America/Europe, but never be the Taiwanese species~
  22. 1st Spec. Lobopterella dimidiatipes (Bolivar, 1890) (Blattellidae; Blattellinae) 2nd Spec. Epilamprinae (Blaberidae). I am not familiar with this group~~ but it should belong to Pseudophoraspis as the following character: Head hind under the pronotun; first segment of hind leg tarsus almost equal to the other segments joint. 3rd Spec. Homalosilpha sp. (Blattidae; Blattinae) This spec. is actually matched with a chinese spec.: Homalosilpha kryzhanovskii Bey-Bienko, 1969. Since the spec. is labeled as endemic of China, and I have not seen all spec. of this genus.. I am not certain. all nice spec.
