Nymph - Blattella germanica

Nymph - Blattella germanica
Corpus Christi, Nueces County, Texas, USA
December 31, 2014
Size: 7 mm
Blatella I supose.
I suppose to be a species in genus Blatella.
It look like a B.germanica nymph but I don't think it is. It came from outdoor. And I suppose if would be B.germanica, I must to find much, much more specimens and indoor not outdoor. But it was only this one.
An another assumption would be B.asahinai nymph (I post on BG a photo of an adult found in October 2014).

I agree. It looks exactly like a nymph of B.germanica.
More, this one was outside but close to the entrance door when I catch it.
Adult of B.asahinai came thru the balcony door when I let the door open.
And it seems to be a female and if I interpreted well the shape and the notch visible on ventral image on the IX tergite, .
