Hi everybody!

Hi!

Im from a country in northern europe called Sweden. I got my first roaches in 1993 (Blaberus fusca). At that time I studied at a school for zoo-keepers. Now I educate zoo-keepers myself at a agricultural school. I have studied biology at the university for about 4 years.

I breed some different species of roaches. Some are feeders and some are pets. Im allways looking for new and interesting species so if you like anything that I have, come with a suggestion on trade. Here follows a list on the species I keep.

Aeluropoda insignis

Archimandrita tesselata

"Bantua robusta", "Afican bullet roach"

Blaberus craniifer "black wing form"

Blaberus giganteus (Costa Rica)

Blaptica dubia

Byrsotria fumigata

Byrsotria rothi

Diploptera punctata

Elliptorhina chopardi

Ergaula capucina

Eublaberus distanti

Eublaberus posticus

Gromphadorhina oblongonata

Gyna lurida

Lucihormetica grossei

Lucihormetica subcinta

Lucihormetica verrucosa

Loboptera decipiens (Italy)

Opisthoplatia orientalis (Taiwan)

Ophistoplatia orientalis (Japan)

Oxyhaloa deutesta

Paranauphoeta formosana (Taiwan)

Neostylopyga rhombifolia

Panchlora nivea

Panesthia angustipennis angustipennis (Phillipines)

Panesthia angustipennis (South Vietnam)

Panesthia angustipennis (Taiwan)

Panesthia angustipennis spadica (Japan)

Panesthia australis (Phillipines)

Panesthinae sp. "red roach" (Phillipines)

Polyphaga obscura (Turkmenistan)

Princisia vanwerebecki "big black"

I hope to learn more about roaches and maybee gain some help with identification of some unidentified species that I keep.

Take care!

Hi Daniel,

Welcome to the updated Allpet Roaches forum! That's a great list of species! What's the difference between O.orientalis from Taiwan and Japan? Is your Panchlora the species commonly known as P.sp. "giant". I've not seen a collection location for it (if that's it) before.

There is no large difference between my two cultures of Opisthoplatia orentalis. They are just collected from two different sites.

The Panchlora sp from Playa del Carmen, Mexico is almost smaller than P. nivea and more brightly green.

Im glad to be here at the forum and I hope to get to know some fellow enthusiasts.

Welcome Daniel! What a great collection! Post some pics of your unidentified ones. I have a few that need ID too. I actually found them outside my work but nobody seems to know what they are. Maybe they're a new undiscovered species. (I wish!) Hehe.

Thank you all for the nice words about my collection.

Regarding pictures I have a small problem. Im not very good at decreasing the size of the pictures and that sort of thing. I belive they would be very large and take a long time to download if I published them.
