Paratropes cf. bilunata
It is definitely Paratropes bilunata!http://cockroach.speciesfile.org/Common/...
Thank you, I never imagined that could happen either
Colorful and beautiful cockroach! Quite different from the ones in Japan (black or dark brown). We would have never imagined that the words "cockroach" and "beautiful" can be used in one sentence... Nice find!
Thanks again :)
Nice! I had already favorited this but seeing it again, I really know it. I saw this a few times in Colombia. Now I have an ID, thanks bayucca and Ismael.
Thank you for your help bayucca :)
Blattodea, Paratropes sp., looks like Paratropes bilunata, quite common on in Costa Rica. But there is few info about."Unfair" ID, since I Ided the other one myself. Please, check yourself, you may have more informations about these ones in Costa Rica.
Yes some sort of cockroach
