This very large species of Panchlora is believed to be exoleta, however this has not yet been confirmed. The females can be over an inch long, dwarfing the common green banana roach. Care is the same as their smaller cousin. The nymphs cannot climb smooth surfaces, unlike the adults. Don’t let their size trick you; the males are great fliers.
