What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

glowing thing
Hi-
I’m working as an outdoor educator in southern NH. I’ve found a few of these strange insects while walking at night. They look a little like rollie-pollies or sow-bugs, but they seem to have a really small head, and they glow green from two spots on their undersides. Are they female fireflies or firefly larvae? I was hoping they were something more exciting, but any info would be much appreciated!
Thanks!
Beth

Hi Beth,
This is a Firefly Larva. We requested additional information from Eric Eaton, but he informed us it is very difficult to identify Firefly larva species.
