I stayed at Kaieteur for 4 days so I had plenty of time to see a couple of these roaches. That is a special place that I'll remember forever!

That is awesome! I visited Kaieteur Falls in 1998 but did not see these guys. Wow.

Well I never expected to use the words "pretty" & "cockroach" in the same sentence!

Someone should start a mission for cockroaches so that we have a collection to choose from. ;-)

Hi Yuko, yes probably not on this world, but be careful! If you take the wrong one, I will eat you!

It's only on Project Noah that people rave about which cockroaches they want to be reincarnated and don't get judged. :-)
@bayucca: we probably won't see each other in this life time, but maybe in the next one as this beautiful cockroach... (unless one of us chicken out) ;-)

Looks like, but I would be very selective for my reincarnation as a cockroach, out of your 8 recent spottings I would only prefer this one ;-)...
And I am wondering how many of these people would finally chicken out of being a reborn cockroach when it comes to the crunch...

Bayucca, thanks for the ID and it looks like I converted a bunch of people into cockroach lovers:-)

Pseudophyllodromia sp. as well? Note the blue stripe and the different markings on the head compared with your other one from Honduras.
