Parcoblatta uhleriana "Calera"


Recommended Posts

Interesting strain I found at my friend's house in Calera, AL. A single adult female carrying an ootheca was collected, and I managed to get offsprings from her.

Seems that the population of uhleriana in AL tend to be much smaller than uhleriana from other parts of the US, and resemble Parcoblatta fulvescens as nymphs. Makes me wonder if I should describe this strain as a new subspecies.

Very interesting! Perhaps it should be a subspecies, I'm sure you'll be the one in charge of that decision. ;)

Hopefully the molecular analysis will reveal a clue :)

Cool, let us know how it goes! I can see it now, "Parcoblatta uhleriana alani". :D

Wish I could name it after me.....lol (apparently unethical in scientific community)

Ah, so you would have to get someone else to name it after you, that sucks lol.

Nice, glad they are doing well for you! Love all the different strains/subspecies of this species! :)

Lovely little things, some of these Parcoblatta species have fabulous orangey reds I am noticing. Anymore thoughts on taxonomy for these guys?

All the best from Bill. :D

Some of the red ones have striking patterns :) I'm starting to believe that this one might be named as a new species but I won't know for sure till I hear back from the lab about the molecular analysis
