6065 Photo of a beetle I saw outside my house. At first I thought it was a German cockroach but it didn’t have the dorsal stripe I expected to see. Located north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Thanks! Jamie
This is a cockroach in the genus Ectobius, a relatively recent introduction to North America from the Mediterranean region. See https://tinyurl.com/y8mvu3kd for an image and https://tinyurl.com/yd2fpjab for more detailed information. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
