10 Blattodea

Tarsi are five­segmented. An arolium is present or absent. Tarsomeres 1–4 are usually equipped with euplantulae ( Figs 3a,h View Fig. 3 , 4C View Fig. 4 ). Reduction of adhesive structures occurs often in cavernicolous forms ( Roth 1991). The arolium cuticle bears chitinous threads oriented at some angle to the surface ( Roth and Willis 1952).
