Oriental Cockroach

Based on this BugGuide image, we believe your Cockroach may be an Oriental Cockroach.  According to BugGuide:  “Flightless. Males have wings covering 3/4 of their body length; females have only rudimentary wing stubs.”  Based on this image from our archives, we would not rule out that this is a female Turkestan Cockroach, though BugGuide does not list any Missouri sightings.
