Blattidae sp. "Philippines" (Philippine Plum Roach)


Recommended Posts

Apparently a member of Dorylaea "sensu lato", there's a revision incoming for that genus so I'll just leave them as Blattidae sp. "Philippines" until then. A beautiful, simple "roachy" roach that breeds prolifically in humid conditions. I really like this species, one of my new favorites. :D Adults of both sexes have short wings and are a dark purple-brown, nymphs hatch out black but then turn orange-brown in later instars.
