Abstract: The Blattodea Species File is a taxonomic database of the scientific names of the world's cockroaches (order Blattodea or Blattaria), excluding fossil species and the termites. The BlattodeaSF has full synonymic information for about 4,500 valid cockroach species and it currently contains a total of approximately 7,000 scientific names (all ranks, valid and not valid). In addition it includes information about the geographical distribution of most species, and an increasing number of images of museum specimens (including types), plus pictures of living cockroaches in the wild and in captivity. The BlattodeaSF website and database use Species File Software by David Eades.
