Firefly

Description:

A small Lightening Bug (Beetle), different from the higher elevation of San Cristobal. Small size at 6 mm in length with a white border around the elytra. The thoracic pattern is red with a wide black central band. Family Lampyridae.

Habitat:

At the lights of a store, Teopisca, Chiapas, Mexico, 1,800 meters. Chiapas rises and drops in altitude rapidly, sometimes in as little as 20 minutes driving, resulting in very different flora and fauna within short distances.
