In this paper the results are given of studies made on the genital organs of Leucophaea maderae (Fabr.). The internal and external genital organs of adult males and females were studied morphologically and compared with other cockroaches found in South Africa. Sections were also made through the internal genital organs of adult males and females and the histological structure of the organs studied. In addition the development of the external genitalia in the nymphal stages was observed.
