Sand Cockroach - Arenivaga

Sand Cockroach - Arenivaga
Ronald W. Caspers Wilderness Park, Orange County, California, USA
July 6, 2013
Seen while black-lighting at the oak in the parking lot below the nature center.

Moved from ID Request.

Thanks Brandon ..
.. for confirming genus ID!

Arenivaga looks solid. Same as this sand roach, maybe?

Sand roach seems right ..
but we'll see what the experts say.

Saw this around 9:30pm - had you and Iszak left by then? Great that y'all were there to document some of the bugs. Often with a public program like this I don't get to photograph the bugs till later.

We left at 9:27; I'd checked my clock.
It's nearly impossible to lead, shoot, and do both right. Hats off for your restraint! I think I have a couple more to post, from Iszak's batch. Thanks again for hosting!
