Hi Tim,
I was wondering if you still find these from time to time? I would really appreciate it if you could collect some nymphs for me, I would love to have some of these in culture. Many of their habits are unrecorded, and it would be helpful to rear and breed some to record how long they take to mature, what do their ootheca look like, etc. Let me know if you can help me out! :)

 
I will look while out and abo
I will look while out and about, it is the right time of year.

 
Thanks, I appreciate it!
Let me know if you find anything! :)

"That adorable creature from Joshua Tree is a female Eremoblatta. The one below from Anza Borrega is probably same but I sure would like to look at it. There are new species of Arenivaga from that area and I have no females."

Awesome find.
Super cute cockroach, and I beleive it's in Polyphagidae/Corydiidae. They aren't very well represented on the guide, but hopefully someone else will know more.
