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 (part):

The purpose of this study is to establish a foundation of general knowledge on firefly mating behavior; such general information should pinpoint species best suited for studies on the role of flash signals in reproductive isolation. The approach is a comparative study of mating behavior in several closely related species. The genus Photinus was selected because of: (1) a relatively large number of species in eastern North America, (2) terrestrial rather than arboreal habits, and (3) apparent simplicity of function of the flashing in adults.
