Robshelfordia cf_circumducta

Ectobiidae  : Blattellinae

A newly established Australian species whose identity is yet to be confirmed. Present in Hawkes Bay. A relatively small species that could be confused with both Parellipsidion conjunctum or Blatella germanica. However, the whiteish markings on the sides of its prothorax, wings and cerci distinguish it from the more uniform colours of those two species.
