All cockroaches have an oval and flattened body, and a thorax covered by a large plate which extends partly over the head. Both the American and the Australian cockroach are large, approx 40mm in length and reddish brown in colour. The American cockroach has indistinct brown markings on the thorax and no yellow edges on the fore wings while the Australian cockroach has a yellowish thorax with dark edges and yellowish edges at the base of the forewings. In contrast the German cockroach is much smaller at about 10mm in length, a pale colour with two dark bars running lengthways down the thorax.
