My Wild Caught Blaberus Atropos


Recommended Posts

 Wild caught Blaberus Atropos “Allapattah” locality. I believe these are from the same population that Alex found in Miami “near wynwood” many years ago. I found these in a private home in Allapattah that is owned by a pigeon breeder. He has hundreds of pigeons and thousands of Atropos. I collected about 60 adult females and a few males. Next time I return I will be more selective for pronotum markings.

Very cool, not often we see people showing off WC Blaberus from FL.

They are all over South Florida. They are not easy to find but they are everywhere. I know of more Blaberus populations that I plan on checking out soon.

I live on a mountain, use a wheelchair, and will need to leave the bug hunting to someone else for now at least until my 10+ acres are made into wheelchair friendly acreage without disturbing nature as much as possibly.

 

Congratulations on your fine.
