Short description Pseudoglomeris magnifica “Smaragdschabe”:
Pseudoglomeris magnifica is a diurnal cockroach species that can be observed all day in search of something to eat. It is not in a hurry at all, but moves very carelessly until it usually arrives at the highest point in the terrarium. On its way, it likes to nibble on everything it can taste. Especially lichens, pollen and fruits are her favourite food. Afterwards she cleans herself extensively, completely unprotected in the enclosure, before she starts her walk. As the reproduction rate is very low for a cockroach species, with a maximum of 12 nymphs per litter and a gravidity (pregnancy) of up to 6 months, one could conclude that it imitates an inedible rosebug species with its appearance.
This protective mimicry is relatively common in nature and this would be a logical conclusion for me. All we need now is the right beetle to support this theory.
