I found this worm in my kitchen late at night, maybe brought in on the fur of a cat, but
it was glowing yellow/green, I caught it and looked at it in the day and still don’t know what it is

Glowworm

Hi Pat P,
Though it is commonly called a Glowworm or Railroad Worm, this is actually the larva of a beetle in the family Phengodidae, and we have several images on our sight that document the glowing of Glowworms.

Thanks so much.
I was at a loss to know.
Have a truly wonderful day!
Pat
