Allpet Roaches Posted August 11, 2007 Share Posted August 11, 2007 I was originally sent these for possible identification. They are species found in the Grenadines (micro islands located between St. Vincent and Grenada in the southern Caribbean). At the time I thought the requirement was species identifications which could be rather difficult but the following are the probable family and subfamily. I was able to get permission to use the photos today (you cannot post another person's photographs without permission). Of course if anyone is absolutely certain on a genus or species identification, please post. Blaberidae, Epilamprinae - A large species found under rotting wood on the ground, never seen any with wings. Fairly common. Blattellidae, Pseudophyllodromiinae - A small species found in the base of dry coconut branches high on the tree. Not common. Blattellidae, Blattellinae - A small species (13mm) found in leaf litter on the ground. Abundant. Blaberidae, Epilamprinae - A medium-sized species found in leaf litter near freshwater ponds. Not common. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
