Hi!

Trichoblatta sp.

Best wishes

Fredrik

Actually, it is probably one of a dozen species of Perisphaerus. Probably Perispaerus semilunatus. All are typical to the Phillipines, but are also known in other parts of Asia.

I have had the opportunity to have both Trichoblatta pygmae and Trichoblatta nigra (90% sure about the ID, but I hope I'll have a defenitve answer soon) for a short period of time and they are as beautiful as they are in the photos.

Best wishes

So do you 'have' or 'had' the Trichoblatta sp? I would love to see some pics other than the few already floating around the internet. For that matter, would love to see some in person.. ;)

I only had the Trichoblatta for a couple of weeks until I could hand them over to my friend.

I am sorry, but I didn't take any photos.

I think I know what a few of you are thinking right now, hmm, no photos, nothing to back this up, man, he's making this up.:D

Well, I'm not, and remember, finding new species were a part of my business a few years back, that was my "trade mark".

Best wishes

Fredrik
