Mystery North Carolina Roach Nymph - Periplaneta fuliginosa

Mystery North Carolina Roach Nymph - Periplaneta fuliginosa
Greensboro, Guilford County, North Carolina, USA
July 26, 2019
Found in the morning, succumbing to exterminator’s recent treatment. My guess is a Smokey-Brown but have not found an image that looks exactly like this one. The lighter stripes on the abdomen and reddish brown coloration of the underbelly are throwing me off.

Nymphs are tough, but with luck the experts will be able to take the ID further.
