  1. Hello, it looks like a member of the Theganopteryx genus. best regards Ingo
  2. Hello, the picture shows a member of the genus Monachoda Burmeister, 1838 very similiar to Monachoda grossa (Thunberg, 1826). It is a large species too, but less than 8 cm! best regards Ingo
  3. Hello, for a better Id it will be necessary to take a view on the hindwings, and than into the genitals. But you know a specialist, I now it ;-) best regards Ingo
  4. Hey Steven, you can adding two further species: Ischnoptera bilunata Saussure Ischnoptera nox Hebard Citation: Atkinson, T.H., J.R. Mangold, and P.G. Koehler. 1992. Two neotropical cockroaches of the genus Ischnoptera (Dictyoptera: Blattellidae) established in Florida. Florida Entomol. 75(1): 109-115. best regards Ingo
  5. Hey, Epilamprinae is the subfamily Rhabdoblatta is a genus enclosed into the subfamily but it can be also an other genus (e. g. Homalopteryx) cheers Ingo
  6. Hey, your roaches are members of the subfamily Epilamprinae. May a species with a dimorphism - because I have collected several species from the same family where the males was winged and the femal was wingless and looking like a nymph. It is a difficult family to ID these on pictures. I believe it is impossble without a dissection of the internal genitalia. But first of all you have to try to establish these nice species in culture. But later I can try it, if you want. best regards Ingo
  7. Hello, it is quite difficult to breed them, because of the changing of the temperature interchange from very cold to higher during the day and also into the year. We have got them in the second generation. cheers Ingo
  8. Hello, I have got some new species just in culture for a while. The newest are a Pseudoderopeltis sp. from SA. cheers Ingo
  9. Hello, why you don't use this link, you can get the hole paper: http://www.mnhn.fr/oseb/Grandcolas/Grandcolas_fichiers/G97b.pdf best regards Ingo
  10. For me it looks also like the black wing strain. I have a picture enclosed of a pure Archimandrita tesselata culture. It is a long time ago, but since two year some of them has also the black wing morph. as you can see. that's emaising, that without mixture a morph can dreat in a culture and make all the colour question discutable. best regards Ingo PS: I could not see my picture: who can do it for me?
  11. Please note: the coloration of the hissers has not the systematic relevance. it is the shape and form of the pronotum first. and this differs in your examples very well. And of course, may we find some other morphological parts, which can make a differens in the genus Blaberus easier as up to day and it was overlooked all the years. That is the reason, why I am still working on it and asked for your help. best reagards Ingo
  12. Hey anybody, some of yours are using a wrong name of this lateralis species. Blatta lateralis Serville, 1838 is a synonym of Hemithyrsocera histrio (Burmeister, 1838) but I am shure it is the other species. The right name is: Shelfordella lateralis (Walker, 1868) see you Ingo
  13. Dear friends, it is along time ago, that I was actually writing my opinion in this board. But I hav eto do it. I have written to Zephyr, what I am thinking about your discussion of Bl. craniifer. Well in the taxonomy you have first observation the holotyp of a species, if you are not shure, if it this species or not. Well done, I done it, because at the present I have to write a paper of Blaberus and their identification, which kind of species which we have got in culture. It is not easy, because of the great variation into this genus. Anything what I can tell you is, that the European craniifer is confirmed with the real holotyp of the Bl. craniifer and this type has shown pale wings! The black morph, and nothing else it is, a colour morph ore may a subspecies or a local variation is also a craniifer. Well done, I can offer to your: if you would like to be shure I will help with the identification. Anything what I need are 4 male and 2 females, (sometimes are 2 to 1) preserved in alcohol (70% isopopyl) and well labled. And I will help you. For the custems you hab eto declear it as scientific material (and that is it, nothing else) and is not for comercial prupose. And may we found a end with the diffusion calling of the different species, if we have on key. best reagrds Ingo Fritzsche
  14. The Eurycotis slides are showing E. opaca. These was collected by myself during several trips in Cuba. Several local colour forms are distributed yet into Europe. Eurycotis spp. are determinet after the angels and other lobes on the abdomenend and of course on the genitals, also on glands. Defently not by pictures - as several person like to do that! by the way, all Cuban species was determined by E. Gutierrez (a specialist on Eurycotis species, if anybody involved into the material) and me.
  15. Dear zgraham, you can join also the Blattodea Culture Group. best regards
  16. Blaberus fusca is a synonym of Blaberus craniifer. that's the reason, why they produce and work well together! Into the BCG we tried to keep the culture clean from any other influence, like any other species. If we have one stock, we are label it very well and will inform any other breeders which colony they get. That the most importen thing. Any other infromation: Blaberus colloseus is sometimes also mislabeled as Bl. giganteus!!! See you
  17. Dear Jaz, this is an ootheca, which has the female lost. These species is ovoviviparous and the females returns the ootheca in a "breeding place" (egg case? - I don't know it in English, yet). best regards Ingo
  18. I will give you an example: Blattella germanica - german roach - also known as russian, preussen, france etc. any region in german has different names for the same species, also in Europe. Rhypharobia madeara - I think Drummer in the State, in Europe Madaira raoch Shelfordell tatara/Blatta lateralis - turky roach, which one from their, if we have an other in culture from this state, you will get problems. And if you use the scientific names, anybody around the world will understand you clear and it gives you a touch of professionality.
  19. @Matt, which Hormetica spp? There is non species in culture up to date! My favorits are: 1. Schultesia lampyridiformis (BCG 20) 2. different Eurycotis spp. (BCG's 47; 81; 104; 105; 106; 112) - they smell nice (like almonds) 3. Africalolampra ehrmanni was also pretty and nice (BCG 76), may we lost them for cultures. @all, Please used the scientific names!!!! We don't now sometimes, which species are you meaning. We are using other popular names, which I can use too, but you can not understand too!!!!!!!! best rgards Ingo
  20. Daniel, i have seen this species by the lifestock coordinator in Delitzsch last weekend (BCG meeting). But i didn't get a couple to make an determination. I will inform you as soon as possible ingo
  21. Dear daniel, its me again :-) well without some datas (location etc.) and without the disection of the male genital it is not possible to tell you what in hell is it! best regards ingo
  22. Hey, we described the new genus, because the type species of Hormetica didn't has the glow spots and the genitalia has a differnt too. well, a nice picture. see you ingo
  23. Dear Daniel, yes I have seen, that one colony can get into two different colors by the spots. If you are feeding some with carrots and the others not. The corrots will be orange the others yellow. best regards ingo
  24. Dear Daniel, than they looks very dark, but I have determined his stocks. If they don't misslabeled, it will be the right once. I told you, they looks darker as I known, but these sounds and looks interesting. best regards ingo
  25. Please remember, I have creat the BCG list and the stock all over the world arelistet as we known. Also the US stock, japaneseand so one. It would be interesting if anybody help us to make an update, if we can get your your species list. it will be easy for us to give a short note, which once are in the states. it is one click in the database. best regards ingo
