September 28, 2017
Photo was taken through a plastic bag. I apologize for the lack of clarity. I am seeking verification of the ID of this guy. We found a several of these scurrying in the wood chip mulch next to our apartment and I am pretty nervous. We have never seen one inside. At least not yet. They look like a "Turkestan" that I found in one ID, but doesn't match the images I found in other sites that aren't as detailed as yours. A search of roaches in our area didn't net any that looked like this
