Hi guys,
I’m not sure of the ID on this one apart from it possibly being a Platyzosteria species. I often see wood roaches around the place but this is the first time I have ever seen one this big, if it is one, and out basking on a leaf of a sweet potato vine in my garden. Close to 2” long, and has some pretty awesome looking cerci/genitalia?
Rather beautiful don’t you think?

Cockroach

Hi Trevor,
Sorry for the delay, but we have a personal deadline this week that is eating into our posting time allotment.  Oz Animals identifies Cockroaches in the genus
Platyzosteria as Black Cockroaches.
