found under a rock on serpentine soil
Green cockroach with clear wings, about 2.5cm long. Fell out of a bunch of Colombian bananas at. supermarket check-out. Very fast moving, but now dead.
What I think is a cockroach seen scurrying over the (pleasingly curved) leaves of a Zamia in Bold Park.
American Cockroach, Periplaneta americana
Small black insects with long bodies, four long transparent wings, short antennae, six legs, and two small pincers. They appear in small swarms and despite having wings, they do not fly well and do not stay in the air for more than a few seconds. Sometimes their wings fall off. They appeared during the day where there was food.
