The Australian cockroach (Periplaneta australasiae) is probably one of the most common species of cockroach in Sydney, with a length of 23–35 millimetres.Australian cockroaches have long hairy legs and a distinguishing eye camouflage pattern on its thorax, which is often mistaken as being a part of its head, for warding prey. Their antennae are longer than their body length and their body is flat and smooth to get into limited spaces. Adults have a pair of wings but cannot take to the air very efficiently but they have six strong legs that carries them along very fast.
It is very similar in appearance to the American cockroach and may be easily mistaken for it. It is however, slightly smaller than the American cockroach, has a yellow margin on the thorax and yellow streaks at its sides near the wing base.
The young nymph cockroaches appear similar to the adults except they do not have their wings.
During they day the Australian cockroach is usually found concealed in narrow gaps, necessitated by their flat broad bodies. At night time they become more active and are found moving around the household or in the vegetation outside.
