There have been some major discussions regarding the taxonomy of this and another Eublaberus entity in culture. More information/clarification can be found in the livestream segment linked here. The entity known as the six-spot roach appears restricted to Central America, ranging from the northwestern tip of Colombia to Costa Rica. 

This plump species contends for the record of bulkiest roach. The nymphs are little tanks, bulldozing through substrate. The adults like good moisture in their diet, and a deep, coarse substrate (three inches or more) is recommend for optimal breeding. One of the most amusing parts of keeping this species is feeding time; anything placed on the surface of the substrate is dragged under by a hoard of hungry nymphs.
