Size: ~17mm length
I don't know if this unwinged bug is even mature. It was large enough to notice and near the ground-foundation line of the garage under a mercury vapor lamp. It dropped and disappeared after the photo and I haven't seen one since (or before).

this is obviously a boll's sandroach. it is stated and pictured in the texas insect guide.

Moved from Cockroaches.

It looks like a cockroach to me. Compare with .

Ah, a female
...and our predicted future successors. Winged males are frequent at lights, but I did not associate the two. Thanks.
