Yes, in the past I have found the American cockroaches and the oriental cockroaches and this doesn't quite seem to be an oriental.


Here is a very cool looking roach: http://bugguide.net/node/view/31689

Agreed with P. surinamensis.

P. nivea is a neat species to find, though it's not native.

P. septentrionalis is by far one of the prettiest native species you can find in the US Smile

Yeah, def P.surinamensis, found tons of them when I lived in FL. Smile Very cool species, they reproduce solely by parthenogenesis.
