Size: 1 cm
I found a great many scaly-looking firefly larvae around my house this year and attempted to raise them. Apparently it worked; I saw no pupae, only two adults like this one. Finally, a firefly that glows; all I can usually find around here is Ellychinia corrusca and Lucidota atra!

Moved from Beetles. Well done on associating the larva with the adult. Now, if we can get images of pupae... :-)
