I've seen the bug in pic 2, tolerated them, in Malaysia. Flying around the light at night and smacking into things. They really get stuck, cling to clothes, sheets and blankets. Serious claws. And the one in pic 3 are found around here. More in S. Thailand than the north. No idea what either of them are.

@The Snark might know about the species of these. Are these your photos or are they Jamuin's?
those are Jamuin's photos, not mine, just thought they should be shared since i've never seen some of these species before despite living here.

Thanks for your reply but what stands out the most is the guy at pic 1, will remain a mystery at least for the meantime. haha

I'm going to print out all three pics and take them to our local entomologist. He enjoys sleuthing. This may take a week to 10 days or so. Oop. Misogynist me. HIS WIFE and him. The both pack PhDs in Ento.

Don't know exactly what the first two are, I think the top one is in the family Ectobiidae, and the second one is something in the subfamily Epilamprinae.

But that last roach is definitely a Catara sp male, either C.minor or C.rugosicollis, I don't know what the differences are between the two, can't find any pictures of adult male C.minor.

Would love to own Catara, they are really cool looking amd very closely related to the revered Archiblatta hoveni.

Thanks, these definitions are certainly a great help, at least once I get time to go into the forest to look for these guys! Thanks!

okay, sorry just newbie blues :wacky: but how else would I get ppl here to ID rare roaches? Besides, the pix are clearly watermarked, never claimed they were mine. Cheers
