A really long-legged Firefly with large tarsal pads, different from any others that I've seen in our area. About 1 cm long, hairy with really large eyes. There is no red on the prothoracic shield or on the elytra. Only yellow and black. The bioluminescent organs are on the last 3 sternites (see last picture). Family Lampyridae, Photurinae?


It was sitting on the base of a lamp post at night, semi-rural residential area, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico 2,200 meters.
