In this site, there is a compilation of all cytogenetic data published on Blattodea, considering only papers published in scientific journals and not abstracts presented on scientific meetings, thesis or other materials of restrict access. This compilation includes the species names of termites (Isoptera, Blattodea), according to Krishna et al. (2013), and cockroaches (non-termite Blattodea), according to Beccaloni, G. W. (2014).

The site will be revised every year (January) to add new chromosomal data available on literature and changes in Blattodea taxonomy.
