Nice
Nice genus addition. I'm unfamiliar with this one. Moved from Photinus.

this is a male Bicellonycha w. wickershamorum. A true sky-island firefly as it is the only member of the large neotropical genus to make it up here into our mountains. Note the black elytra with yellow margins and elytral suture. Dark black median pronotal vitta, acute hind pronotal corners, all contrast with Photinus knulli, the only Photinus in that area, having concolorous grey elytra, small pronotal spot and rounded hind corners. Best place to see this species is Scotia Cyn. Also the Canelo Hills Nature Conservancy has a good population. Also MuleShoe of the Galliuros.

I see you moved to fireflies
He's really showing it to you, too (-:
Nice behavioral shot

 
Thanks Margarethe
I kept it only because it showed behavior. It was windy that day and hard to get a crisp shot of it on a wand of horsetail.
