One of our smallest US native Pyrophorini, but they still glow brightly nonetheless! @Lucanus collected these from Ocala FL last year, and sent me 9 CB larvae, which I've been rearing up for months now. One of them just pupated, so I should be seeing an adult in person soon, hopefully I'll be able to breed these easily!

Some pictures of a small larva:

And now here is a pupa, under normal lighting and then in the dark, so you can see it glowing.
