La Cucaracha! - Parcoblatta

La Cucaracha! - Parcoblatta

Size: 20 mm
Is this anything other than an American Cockroach (Periplaneta americana)?

This guy scurried out from behind a piece of equipment on my workbench last night. In fact, he scurried to on top of my ruler, where I photographed him. Very accommodating of him!

could this be Shelfordella lateralis?

 
.
No, it looks very different. Maybe a Parcoblatta fulvescens or another similar Parcoblatta, I cannot tell.

Moved
Moved from Cockroaches.

Tawny Cockroach?
Ed, I don't think this is the American Cockroach. Compare with Tawny Cockroach here. I don't know if there are other species similar to the Tawny, however.
