P. concisus has previously been confused with Photinus pyralis (Linnaeus). Male flash pattern emitted about every two seconds (versus about every six seconds in pyralis). Female response-delay about 0.6 seconds in, duration (versus about 2.2 seconds in pyralis). Antepenultimate tergite entirely black (versus with

Abstract

The firefly Pyractomena lucifera (Melsh.) occurs in fresh water marshes throughout the eastern half of temperate North America. Larvae captured prey both above and below the water surface and dragged it above water to feed.

Prey records included:
snails (n = 38) (Gastropoda: Pulmonata),
freshwater limpets (n = 5) (Gastropoda: Ancylidae),
a jumping spider (Salticidae),

Abstract
