This perky roach species was collected by Auburn University and has been cultivated for several years. Adults appear day-active while nymphs will scurry around in leaf litter during the day. It is a good climber but fortunately does not fly. Durable, prolific, and attractive, it makes an ideal candidate for mixed species enclosures.
