The roachhopper split from the scuttlehopper. It now eats the waist and dead organic matter of the creatures in Ittiz Desert. Like their ancestor they are nocturnal and feed at night. They have changed their color to match the rusty-red sands. It is no longer dependent upon the plurge plants for laying their eggs and will lay them in dung of larger creatures. Once they hatch they get a full meal from the dung they are laid in. Once they reach adulthood they will hop away to look for a mate. Once they mate they will look for dung to go lay their eggs in. Once laid they will die. The front mandible have evolved little hairs on the front so it can better scoop up food.
