What species can reproduce asexually?

Recommended Posts

Pycnoscelus surinamensis, Pycnoscelus nigra, Blatta orientalis, Periplaneta americana, Polyphaga saussurei, and Polyphaga obscura are all either entirely parthenogenetic or can reproduce that way if need be. I have observed Periplaneta australasiae reproducing parthenogenetically as well but the nymphs were extremely weak and did not live past the first instar.
