Recommended Posts

This specimen has been positively ID'd as an unknown Orthopteroid insect - but can anyone add anything else to this ID?

A clear picture would definitely be recommended as the details are needed.

possibilities include: 

Anegertus cubitalis Handlirsch 1911, Nectoptilus mazonus ,Lobeatta schneideri

People take note: a bit of nomenclatorial whimsy,Lobeatta is an anagram of Eoblatta

 

As i've said somewhere else onthis forum,wing venation is crucial.

I can't discern anything resembling that,so no wonder it has been id'd as Orthopt.indet.

I'm not seeing anything orthopteroid, or even arthropodish, in that photo.  Who did the "positive identification"?  Of course I may just be being fooled by the photo, things always look different in the hand.
