How to use "Periplaneta" in context?
Periplaneta is a genus of small air-breathing land animals that include the common cockroach and the tropical cockroach, which are native to the Americas.
Both cockroaches and periplaneta have a head that is not attached to the thorax, allowing them to move their head independently. The cockroach antennae are extremely sensitive and are used in navigation and smell. Both cockroaches and periplaneta have six legs and a pair of wings.
