McMinnville, Yamhill County, Oregon, USA February 23, 2011 Size: 3/4 inch
This (Oriental) beetle is approx 3/4" long. The picture was lightened up a bit in hopes facial features would show up more.
It is soft bodied with no wings. Perhaps an instar of Blatta orientalis. It was found in a public restroom.
Thanks you for any help towards a positive ID,
