Re: 300 MY old Cockroach Fossil Found

The 3.5 inch-long (9 cm) insect known as Arthropleura pustulatus was so
well preserved that Easterday could see its legs and antennae, folded
around its body, as well as mouth parts.

I thought _Arthropleura_ was a giant millipede (Diplopoda), not a cockroach.

Has the media got it wrong again, or am I in the dark?
