Luciblatella lucifrons lives in Arizona.

I also took a photo of one of these in AZ and recently received a comment on my flickr stream that C. lutea doesn't occur in AZ: https://www.flickr.com/photos/44150996@N06/9536619920/ and it is instead Latiblattella lucifrons. The cockroach species file: C. lutea: http://cockroach.speciesfile.org/Common/basic/Taxa.aspx?TaxonNameID=1176818 & L. lucifrons http://cockroach.speciesfile.org/Common/basic/Taxa.aspx?TaxonNameID=1177159 backs this up in terms of range descriptions.

Moved from Cockroaches and Termites based on the comments from v. and Alan. Thanks, guys.

Looks like
Male Cariblatta lutea to me

 
boy was I wrong
As I've stated on the flickr image above, this one turned out to be L. lucifrons male

could this be Cariblatta lutea?
