This is currently the smallest roach species in culture, with adults maxing out at around 4 mm. They can be quite prolific, and females pump out oothecae like crazy, (though they only contain around three eggs each). 

Here are some pictures of adult females:

Here's one carrying an ootheca:

Nice! Small roaches (under 1 inch, with exceptions) aren't as appealing for me to keep as pets (harder to handle), but it's great to see that other people keep them. The 1st instars really look like termites (makes sense because they are related...)!

I really like small roaches lol, a lot of the pretty or really ornately patterned species are under an inch in length. And then you got the weird looking ones like these. 😄 So far people have compared the hatchlings to termites, springtails, and Zorapterans. 😂
