Photinus pyralis, common eastern USA firefly - Photinus pyralis - Male
Evansville, Vanderburgh County, Indiana, USA
July 27, 2009
Size: half inch
With red predaceous mite ( I am told). Some fireflies have so many of these they have trouble flying. others do not have any. As the season wears on they become more common.
