This little guy seems most likely to be a cockroach, or something of the sort. That's just what he seems like, I'm about to do some investigating however just to make sure I get it right. This guy has some pretty distinguishable characteristics. Luridiblatta seems like a possible genus however all the facts I can find on it say they are solely from CA. That won't work because I'm on the exact opposite side of the country, Florida. Phyllodromica trivittata is a possible synonym. http://bugguide.net/node/view/87476 hm. I honestly don't know what else he could be. The only thing that irritates me is that I can't find any other sources other than bugguide. Which is a reputable source, don't get me wrong. It's just the wrong coast. I wish I could find a Florida version. So I honestly believe that I found the correct identification. Just going to go with it. If it's wrong, it's at least in the ballpark. All the sources I found say they were recently introduced to California. If that is true it may be bad that I've found one in Florida. They've made it all the way over here? Then again I may be wrong with the ID. We shall see.
