Lobster Roaches: How did they get their name?


Recommended Posts

I'm curious: Why are Henschoutedenia flexivitta and Nauphoeta cinerea referred to as "lobster roaches"? How did they get that name? Even using my imagination I can't see a resemblance to lobsters. And are they both called lobsters due to their similar appearance or were they once in the same genus?
