Dwarf vs giant cave roaches

Recommended Posts

I had what I thought was a bunch of giant cave roaches that I recieved from someone on this board. I also got another set from another source and these new ones are at least 0.5 inches longer as adults and about the same as nymphs. The size difference is noticable and the larger ones are a bit whiter than the smaller ones.

What is a sure fire way to tell the difference?

Dwarf cave roaches have a black band across the midsection as adults, which I believe is not present on the giant cave roaches. I personally have/raise the dwarf caves, and can verify the band. I could send a picture if that would help any.
