these are the four that are in question they were all sold as common hissing cockroaches or Gromphadorhina portentosa, but look very different. Would anyone care to identify them? thank you!




Hard to tell from these pics, but all things considered they're hybrid portentosa. Where'd you get them?

Yeah, at a pet store they're probably selling hybrids.

The one in the second to last pic looks just like my male, who is a confirmed hybrid :) (They were being sold as “giant island leaf roaches” at Petco, but after calling the distributor, they were identified as gromphadorhina portentosa and gromphadorhina oblongonota hybrids with possible others mixed in as well haha)
