snapper of this photo said,

"it takes from Guatemala,i saw this white roach and another green roach."

i don't know this roach's name.

PS:I suppose the green roach would be Panchola nivea,right?

That's a really great roach from Guatemala!

There are more than 35 Panchlora species found in the tropical Americas and West Indies. The green roach your friend saw is likely a Panchlora species but probably not P. nivea. The white roach you have pictured looks like a real 'white Panchlora' (it's not freshly molted as it wouldn't have the dark colors and wouldn't be able to fly to a light: that appears to be a photo of part of a sheet where bugs have landed from light collecting).
