The roach genus Archimesoblatta Vršanský (Mesoblattinidae), known from the Cretaceous of Asia but otherwise absent from Jurassic deposits, is recorded from the Middle Jurassic of India. Archimesoblatta shiva, new species, is described and figured from a forewing tegmen preserved in the Middle Jurassic Kota Formation of the State of Andhra Pradesh, India. The species is distinguished from its congeners, including a key to the species of Archimesoblatta, and brief comments made on the Jurassic roach fauna.
