Arguably the prettiest Parcoblatta species, zebra roaches have been coveted by hobbyists far and wide since the mid 2000s. While very similar to divisa, zebra have different thorax structures on the males, an overall oranger coloration, smaller average adult size, and better contrasting markings. While the species has a large recorded range across the southeastern and central United States, anecdotal reports suggest it prefers moist, forested  habitats such as swamps. Mixed life stages for culture stock seem most abundantly collectible around the lower Mississippi river. This locality does not seem to need a diapause.
