Despite its common name, the Australian roach is native to Africa. It is a pest in greenhouses around the world, where it thrives in the warm, humid conditions. In tropical regions, it can be found around human structures, leaf litter, and nooks in trees. Nymphs hatch out black with a single white band, transitioning into a marbling of yellow, red, and orange. Interestingly, adults share their pronotum markings with the not-so-closely-related Eurycotis decipiens.
