What is this pretty thing

Recommended Posts

Guesses would be Platyzosteria or Calolampra sp. maybe?

Many Australian species are not well known, so this may take a little more deduction....

Thanks Matt,

I looked up both and this link says Platyzosteria....

It can be hard to say for sure because there are a lot of wingless roaches of neat colors in Australia. It is also similar to Aptera fusca from southern Africa.

Example of an Aptera fusca (these come in stipe and solid colors too):



There are roaches out there that look very similar but are completely different species.
