Eublaberus marajoara "Brazil" (Ink Splotch Roach)

Recommended Posts

A species with very pretty and polymorphic adults (in terms of coloration at least). The newest Eublaberus to enter culture, hopefully they'll be well established in the US soon! :) Honestly not sure what to call them common name wise, but the variable black markings on the adults reminds me of random ink splotches/splatters. Can't wait to see adults in person!

Medium nymph:

Getting adults now, so hopefully they'll be making nymphs of their own soon! 😁 Here's some pics of one of my females:






The adult patterning is quite variable, I love species with polymorphic patterning, and I'll have to get a good photo of a group of adults here soon. 😄

Very cool! Do you know what part of Brazil they come from?

Absolutely no clue, "Brazil" is the only locality given for this strain, which entered culture first in Russia around 2017-18 I wanna say.

I would speculate the name has to do with the locality.


After a quick search this is what I found

Probably the type locality for the species, yes. But still no clue where this particular hobby stock comes from. 😅

Mine oddly weren't breeding for me, they seem to require a lot more space than other Eublaberus sp., and are a bit more picky in general. I kept a pair for myself but sent the rest to @Magnificent Beasts, who's already gotten several litters. :) I expect he'll start dispersing them further in the US hobby early next year.
