Cockroaches collected during a protracted series of fieldwork in several limestone caves in Polillo Island, Philippines were taxonomically studied. A new species of Nocticola (Nocticolidae), N. gonzalezi Lucañas & Lit, sp. n., is described. The male of Periplaneta banksi Hanitsch (Blattidae) is described for the first time. Altogether, the present cave cockroach fauna of the island consists of six species.

Temporary deleterious mass mutations relate to originations of cockroach families
TLDR
Wing deformity and principal, family rank origination rates correlate from the Mississippian/Pennsylvanian to the present, which is the first significant support for the association of detrimental mutations and evolution on the geological scale.
