Firefly larva?

I found these tiny flat bugs glowing near a waterfall one night here in bloomington, indiana. I was very curious as to what it was… unusual, flat, and the back apeard to light up… long pauses nearly 30sec to a min between lighting up.. and the light lasted much longer than a firefly… from what i remember nearing a half a minute lightup time….
