Hi! This is a follow-up submission with another couple of photos. The roach is not B.dubia. It doesn’t have the same markings, shape of pronotum is different, and it climbs glass. So WHAT is it? It is from Central America. Not an indoor pest. Very uncommon.

Thanks so much for providing additional excellent images of this mysterious Cockroach as a followup to your nine year old original submission. We hope this new posting will generate a positive identification for you.
