I haven’t seen this type of firefly before. After searching the internet I found a similar photo for a Say’s firefly. Is this a common firefly in New England? All these years of watching fireflies and this is the first time I’ve seen like this one.
I know you’re busy, but if you have time, your input would be helpful.
thank you and Om shanti (peace)

Hi Roberta,
This Firefly does not look that unusual to us, and we apologize as we are not able to confirm its exact species identity.  BugGuide is a good resource for trying to identify insects.
