As far as I know E.subdiaphana is the only one in your range...
Pretty sure E.hirsuta is only in the very far southern US, if it's even here at all, but just in case, I'll leave these at genus level for now.

Moved from Corydiidae.

Yup, def Eremoblatta...
Again, great pictures, love the beautiful dark reddish pronotum on this one. :)

 
This species is very abundant right now
but only the males seem to be attracted to the lights. I plan to look for females, but have not had the time or opportunity yet. Thank you for the ID.
Thank you also for your kind comments about my photos. I am new to insect photography and hope to produce better images in the near future.

 
Very cool!
Hope you can find some females! :)
No problem man, your photos are great, way better than any of mine! Keep up the great work!
