I found this cockroach on the exterior wall of a building. Maybe Parcoblatta? I've posted more images to Bug Guide here:

In Austin for the TPWD orientation, so I explored the area next to the hotel. Spotted some neat things! :)
Been hiding in my woodpile and covered in dust or pollen.
I suspect it's D. heydeniana the West Australian import. If cockroaches could be described as beautiful then these fit the bill when they are all cleaned up.
This fellow is 35mm long not counting antennae.

The white stripe was obvious, quite happy flying.

Blattodea is an insect order that currently combines the Cockroaches and the Termites. Formerly, the Termites were considered a separate order, Isoptera, but genetic and molecular evidence suggests a very close relationship with the Cockroaches. The Blattodea and the Mantises (order Mantodea) are now all considered part of the superorder Dictyoptera.
