I think that they don´t have common name. I prefer the latin name becouse is more exactly than the common one.

Best regards,

No common name for this one. I also prefer to stick to Latin names because it stays clear what is being referred to. Many roaches have more than one common name in use even though many are not correct. All latin names are correct! But this is just my preference.

They have a very potent chemical weapon. From a distance it smells like new leather, but more overpowering. The smell remains on anything it contacts for about 3 days. It is reported that it can cause blindness in humans if direct eye contact occurrs.

what's Archiblatta hoeveni's common name?
As a general rule of thumb only common species have common names. Archiblatta is neither well known nor common. I can't imagine what name it would have one day if it became a common species but it might just be 'hoeveni'.

All latin names are correct!
Any name can be in error. Some examples would be someone "identifying" the bullets as Bantua robusta when Bantua is live bearing -wrong family- or Blaberus discoidalis and other small Blaberus being sold as Blaberus giganteus.
