Buschman, L. 2016. Field Guide to Western North American Fireflies. 33 pgs.

This Field Guide is intended for those who would like to identify the different fireflies in Western North America. This guide covers the most common firefly species and is not intended to include all known species since many of them are uncommon (the uncommon species are considered in the last section).

North America is blessed with ca. 200 hundred species of Lampyrids. This Field Guide will focus on the flashing fireflies. However, I will present the most common “Glowwarms” (Lampyrids (females) that glow from the ground) and the “Dark Fireflies” (non-glowing Lampyrids).
