Cockroach - Periplaneta fuliginosa
Moccasin Lake, Winston, Douglas County, Georgia, USA
July 28, 2008
Need ID on this cockroach. Photographed at night near porch light, feeding on the remains of a Planthopper.

Moved from Periplaneta.

The pale areas on the proximal antennae, thorax, and abdomen are typical of Periplaneta as is the demonstration of omnivory. I suspect it is a Smoky Brown cockroach. Moved from Cockroaches and Termites.

Moved from Cockroaches.

This is a young nymph. Have no clue what genus, let alone species. Nice image, though.
