Bush Cockroach

Ellipsidion australe (nymph)


1-2 cm black and reddish-black rounded roach with a cream to pale yellow band across the carapace and pale dotted lines across the abdomen


Found on a night light by a driveway in a garden. Probably keeping warm on a chilly spring night


Another bad photograph. Black on black really needs a tripod to get the slow shutter speed working
