I wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of those legs! Subtle but quite pretty coloring.

Two males (female looks just like male, but is noticeably larger and somehow bulkier).

Surprizingly, one with orange blotch is by far not freshly molted.

How gorgeous! So do they normally not have orange blotches?

AFAIU, no; black from above and dull-orange below, with brown eyes. 

But I've already 2 males with such a blotch, separated them with one black female, mb, they'll produce smth interesting :)

In fact, took them in november, 2017, in southern Lao. Dry sandy riverbed, moist but already without water, and nymphs were quite abundant but very local, found'em on only one patch, mb 2 - 3m in diameter, anywhere else around, in absolutely identic places, found nothing.

From february to march successfully molted into imago (only 1 or 2 died for uncertain reasons), and now there is a crowd of newborn roachlings :)

Huh, interesting! That would be awesome if you could isolate it.

And nice work! ?
