Cockroach   (Nevada)
Luridiblatta trivittata

cockroach
I found this little insect in some wetlands around the Las Vegas area and figured that it had to be a cockroach
of some kind. Bugguide confirmed that belief.  © Carol Davis 3-29-2010


Luridiblatta trivittata
It was decided that this was Luridiblatta tribittata, an non-native species from the Mediterranean area.
They are quite small and the theory is that they won't become an inside pest.
  So far they have only been
spotted in California and Nevada.
