Thanks Albert! Let us know if he gets back to you. This might be another instance of a species once described and then never seen again, till you photographed it!
Thanks again, @Lauren :)@Daniele, I asked him for references but he hasn't replied yet.Can't find any other pics of it online. And the reference of it is from this website :http://cockroach.speciesfile.org/Common/...indicating the species and all the 4 species of them under the genus are only from Philippines. And all the species were described back in the 19th century!
Great you finally got an ID Albert! Does your local expert have a book or a museum collection as a reference?
Hi Albert, so glad you found the ID! It is still an amazing roach!!! Love that 2nd picture too!
Hi Lauren, finally managed to find the ID for this Cockroach, from a local (Filipino) expert on Cockroaches. But there doesn't seems to be any other references or images online though.
Thanks, @Lauren :)
