Paratemnopteryx couloniana

Ectobiidae  : Blattellinae  : Parcoblattini

Although having been in New Zealand for nearly 50 years this species has been found only in one suburb of Auckland and in Napier where perhaps it was independently established. Yet it is widespread in Australia where it is often associated with urban habitats. It is uniform brown and adults have short tegmina.
