Desert Roach.
This is a male in the genus Arenivaga. Females are much smaller, wingless, and burrow in the sand. Neat find. Males come readily to lights at night.

 
Thanks! Caught another one ea
Thanks! Caught another one early this a.m. but i guess finding a female is a whole different matter . . . so much for my colony!

Thanks again!
