According to current data, this roach species is endemic to Bolivia. Like most other Blaberus, it is undemanding and excellent for beginners. Unique among currently cultured Blaberus is the deep brown wing color, coupled with a typically large, dark pronotum spot. Perhaps the neatest feature, most individuals also sport a pair of eerily red dots on their pronota, though some may not have these. Unfortunately due to poor labeling and isolation techniques, many strains of this species are hybrids with the much more common discoid roach. This stock is 100%-pure, as determined by microscopic examination of the male genitalia and lineage tracing.
