Supella longipalpa

This roach was found in Santa Rosa, California. I find them mostly outside but this little guy was on the wall this morning so I took a pic. They are only about 1/4". Was wondering if you guys could confirm this is a Supella longipalpa nymph. I've never seen any adults around.

Also, there's something coming out of it's rear end and it's waving it around. What the heck is that??

I would be glad to buy some from you !!! As far as that tail end thing goes.... I would need to see the roach in person. This may be a question for Orin.

I just made a roach trap and set it under the bush they hang out by. There was still a lot running around but I think they would be impossible to catch without the trap. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I might have some in the morning. I hope they like fig newtons. It was the only sugary thing I could find around here for the trap. lol.

- Could this be blatella vega nymph? I only found pics of adults, but the stripes are similar.

Blattella vaga Hebard, peridomestic but not regarded as a pest as such, adults may fly to light
