Roach id eastern Kentucky Appalachian foothills


Recommended Posts

Roach "A" is smaller and was collected under leaves in damp forest.

Roach "B" was collected in an old abandoned house in said forest.

Roach B: http://kybugs.com/whats_that/b.html

I collected 9 of roach A with a ratio of 6 males/3 females

and 3 nymphs of roach B - all have now molted to female adults so I have no reference for B males

Any help with id greatly appreciated!

The Roach B seems to be Parcoblatta pennsylvanica, The Roach A male seems to be P.uhleriana, and the female (which is still a nymph BTW), is also P.uhleriana.

I was thinking B was likely pennsylvanica. As I review the specs of uhleriana it's seems to be spot on, thanks for the input!
