Rounding out the captive Panchlora roster with a bit more variety, the speckled banana roach is lighter than other species and many individuals are faintly yellow. Distinguished from other kept species (except some lines of true nivea) by several black spots on the wings, a closer look reveals many more light, starry speckles as well. Along with sp. “Giant”, this is one of the easier Panchlora species, though a little rarer.
