Desert Cockroach  Arenivaga sp female  - Eremoblatta subdiaphana - female

Desert Cockroach Arenivaga sp female - Eremoblatta subdiaphana - Female
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, San Diego County, California, USA
March 5, 1998
Size: BL ~ 8 mm
We think this is an Arenivaga female. I was found on the sandy desert trail at Borrego Palm Canyon right next to a large rock. We had no idea what this small wingless insect was. Not until we found a male several years later and started to study the group did we start to consider that it was a desert roach female. Thanks in advance for any help.

Moved from Arenivaga.

 
Eremoblatta possibly
At #605462, a male Arenivaga desert cockroach, there is a quote from Heidi Hopkins that this female, #605463, is more likely Eremoblatta than Arenvaga--but she couldn't be sure without inspecting it.
