FIELD COCKROACH Loboptera decipiens


         As there is only limited reference material available to assist with the identification of cockroaches (perhaps reflecting the fact that these are not the most popular of insects!) this one with pale margins found in the South of France has been provisionally identified as a Field Cockroach Loboptera decipiens. It had been attracted to light (i.e. it was sitting on a lit bulb at night) and this enabled a very clear image to be obtained.
