Moved from Blattidae.

 
Thank you Hisserdude!
I usually find the Turkestan roach outdoors, but this one was inside an apartment. Is it a male? Adult males are very easy to tell apart from females, but nymphs might be trickier.

 
Pretty sure it's female...
As shown by the enlarged last ventral segment. This species is pretty commonly found around and in homes, though they do breed outside. They just wander indoors often, like Periplaneta.
